About the Author: Mark Andreas has been gathering these stories of peaceful conflict resolution for the past 7 years, interviewing people with a story to tell, recording the interviews and and then writing up these stories for this book. To this he's added a number of wonderful stories others have written, but which in most cases have not been accessible or well-known, to create this unique and meaningful book. Mark received his undergraduate degree in Peace and Global Studies at Earlham College, after which he got two years of hands-on experience in conflict mediation and leadership as a counselor/trip-leader for the Monarch Center for Family Healing. He was in charge of facilitating groups of troubled youth on a round-the-clock basis both in individual therapy and group process during three-week-long backpacking expeditions throughout the western United States. Mark currently offers individual sessions assisting people of all ages in achieving life-goals and resolving limitations using NLP and other methods for personal transformation and development. He also continues to explore the realms of conflict and community through his Science Fiction and Fantasy writing. Mark lives in Boulder, CO.
