I was so inspired by my adventures while traveling throughout Europe, India, Nepal, Tibet, China, and other exotic locales that I had to write something. Then one day early last year, an idea started to take form quickly. I was finally enabled to weave some of my stories and integrate them into one of the best love story adventures to come along in years.

Mark Stephen Levy has been earning his living working within corporate sales of technology for many years. About a third into his career, he decided to take a sabbatical from the everyday stress of working life, and went traveling around the world for two years. It was the journey of a lifetime and changed Mark’s perception of the world, and the people and cultures and religions within it.
The impact was profound, compelling, life changing. From the jet set beaches of the Costa del Sol of Spain, to the deserts of Morocco, and over to the islands of Greece, Mark was on a trip of lifetime.It wasn’t till India that Mark saw how the other half of the world lives, and the spirituality that radiated from despair that came with it. He lost all sense of material self, and transcended to where he had never spiritually been before. And he liked it, he liked it a lot…and he was changed forever.

Facing the reality of having to earn a living again, Mark returned from a two year journey back home to Los Angeles and jump started his technology career.While Mark’s technology career ebbed and flowed, the stories and memories from that auspicious trip never left and had begun to surface and grow and take form. A fictional story emerged to where his first novel, OVERLAND was written, and put pen to paper and the story was unleashed with passion and fury.

OVERLAND has fans from all around the world on Facebook, Twitter, Linked In and multiple other sites. Fans of OVERLAND have left comments that they love the story and can’t wait for the movie version. Overland’s global appeal will compel all generations to see a story reminiscent of Indiana Jones, The English Patient, a touch of The Notebook and Mark’s greatest literary inspiration, Dr.Zhivago.

Mark Stephen Levy published his novel Overland in 2009,
a fictional account of an American stranded in Kabul, Afghanistan on December, 27, 1979 the day the Soviets invade.

Has there ever been a period in your life where you feel completely lost? Lost that is meant in a spiritual, guided way. Not a pleasant feeling, is it? Then some miracle happens, could be anything. It could even be some compelling moment in time such as those imaginary light bulbs that pop up in cartoons. That ah ha moment!

There are many opportunities that can guide you along the way…along life’s path…religion, certainly, your spouse or close friend, parents, your children, a book, music, or art, a movie or TV show (LOST).
For me, the ah ha moment was when I traveled around the world, and discovered who I was…what was interesting at the time, I knew I had lost my own that spiritual path had fallen off course, and was well, lost. When I rediscovered how to get back on course, it was as illuminating, and mentally as invigorating as anything I’ve ever experienced. I highly recommend it. Being found.

For Danny in Overland, when he escaped and ran down hill towards his freedom, it was in harm’s way and war time, but he had never felt more alive and free. Although perilous, he found life’s path, and never looked back!
