About the Author

After graduating from Parsons School of Design, Mark Moran set out on a journey of weird discovery, wandering the back roads of the United States, listening to the tall tales locals would tell and photographing the unusual sites he found. This odd quest would lead him to unforeseen and unexpected roles as magazine publisher, author, and TV-show host. These days Mark lives a seemingly normal life in a quiet New Jersey suburb with his wife and two daughters. Mark Sceuerman blended his love for New Jersey and his affection for the strange into a magazine called "Weird N.J.", which explored every unbelievable tale he would hear while traveling around the state. The response to the publication was overwhelming, and the journey to uncover little-known weird stories about the other 49 states began. Mark has been in the publishing industry most of his life as a graphic designer, writer, and man behind the scenes on the New Jersey music front. Currently Mark lives in NJ with his wife, Shirley, and their daughter.
