Mark Rozema was raised in the mountain town of Flagstaff, Arizona. His formative years were spent in the bed of a pickup truck, careening down dusty Reservation roads, exploring remote canyons with his dingo-Aussie mutt. Adulthood found him on farms, fishing boats, fire lines, in group homes, and in classrooms. After leaving Arizona, he wandered through Utah, Alaska, and Montana, eventually landing in Washington, where he now tutors students at Edmonds Community College. He received an MFA from the University of Montana in 1990. His essays can be found in various journals, including Flyway, Weber Studies, Isthmus, Under The Sun, Sport Literate, and Superstition Review. He lives in Shoreline, Washington, with his wife, daughter, and two dogs. Road Trip is his first book.

He holds degrees from Arizona, Oregon State, and the Iowa Writers’ Workshop, and his fiction has appeared or is forthcoming in journals including Epoch, CutBank, LIT, Glimmer Train, and Sequestrum. His debut collection, Desert sonorous, won the 2014 Juniper Prize, and he’s won grants and other awards from groups including Oregon Literary Arts, the University of Arizona Poetry Center, Poets & Writers, and, in 2012, a literary fellowship from the NEA.
