- 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.

MEET THE AUTHOR OF OVERLAND
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.
