About the Author

Edgar Allan Poe was an American poet, short-story writer, editor and literary critic. Best known for his tales of mystery and the macabre, Poe was one of the earliest American practitioners of the short story and is considered the inventor of the detective-fiction genre. Born Edgar Poe in Boston, Massachusetts in 1809; he was informally adopted by the Allans of Richmond after his parents' death. He attended the University of Virginia and briefly attempted a military career, before embarking on a literary career. After publishing an anonymous collection of poems in 1827, Poe switched his focus to prose and spent the next several years working for literary journals and periodicals. He married his cousin, Virginia Clemm, in 1835, who died in 1842 not long after publishing his famous poem 'The Raven'. He began planning to produce his own journal, The Penn (later renamed The Stylus), but died in 1849 before being able to see it produced.
Mark R. Jones is a ninth-generation native of South Carolina. He is a licensed City of Charleston tour guide, conducting carriage tours for Palmetto Carriage and daytime history and nighttime ghost tours for Bulldog Walking Tours. Mark is also one of a select group of guides who conducts the Dark Side of Charleston Tour for Bulldog: the tour that inspired the writing of the Wicked Charleston books. The Dark Side is the only non-ghost nighttime tour in Charleston. On average, Mark conducts twenty tours a week, about one thousand per year. He is the author of Wicked Charleston: The Dark Side of the Holy City, which covers the history of the founding of Charles Towne from a unique perspective: drinking, prostitution and murder. The Charleston Post and Courier called the book a solid (if tipsy) foundation for the revelry to come."? Wicked Charleston, Volume 2 is the continuation of that revelry. In his free time, Mark is always on the prowl for new salacious stories about Charleston. Information about Mark, his books, tours, personal blog and speaking engagements can be found at his web site: www.wickedcharleston.net.
