Clear, concise, and accessible are the three words most often used to describe the prose of Mark Levine. He is expert at making complex information and abstract concepts approachable for a general readership, and developing book structures that best convey that information. Levine is known for his ability to deliver extraordinarily clean manuscripts under the tightest of deadlines.
His calm demeanor and consummate professionalism have allowed him to successfully collaborate with personalities as varied as a hard driving former Green Beret, a tranquil Episcopal priest, a systematic Wall Street executive, a streetwise Park Avenue lawyer, a peripatetic Madison Avenue creative director, an intense New York investment banker, and an emotive Midwestern motivational speaker, among others.
While he has written on subjects as diverse as leadership, business, marketing, personal finance, career planning, and spirituality, Levine is one of those rare writers who have the ability to write hybrid works which bridge genres, whether leadership guide/memoir, self help/business, or career/personal finance.
Levine has collaborated on nearly 30 published books, including the best sellers Second Acts, Die Broke, Live Rich and Lifescripts. Besides shepherding projects from proposal through final text, Levine has also done book doctoring and manuscript editing for projects in various stages of development.
He has also been a contributing editor to Worth and a columnist for Men’s Health and Working Woman. He is also the author of hundreds of magazine articles, three of which were nominated for the American Society of Magazine Editor’s National Magazine Awards. As editor-in-chief and treasurer of Third Millennium Press, Inc., a book packaging firm, Levine produced 17 books for major publishers. He has taught magazine writing at Cornell University and has been a guest lecturer at Syracuse University's Newhouse School of Journalism. He is a member of the Authors Guild.
