Mark Mynheir was born and raised on
the east coast of Central Florida. Like most boys growing up, Mark enjoyed sports, mainly football and
martial arts. In 1983, he enlisted in the United States Marine Corps and went through basic training at
Parris Island, South Carolina. After serving four years in the Marines, Mark changed gears and pursued
a career in law enforcement with the Palm Bay Police Department (Florida).
During his career as a police officer,
Mark has worked as a narcotics agent, a SWAT team member, and a homicide detective. As a writer, Mark has
begun a Christian orientated series of crime fiction books called the Truth Chaser Series.
His first book, Rolling
Thunder is described as, “Law Enforcement Agents Can Do It All. But Forgive? John Russell is the Florida
Department of Law Enforcement agent assigned to the missing Dylan Jacobs' case. But while he's tracking down clues
in his professional life, a murderer is hot on his trail - his own flesh and blood. John's father relentlessly seeks something
John refuses to offer: forgiveness. Forced to face the source of his paralyzing fear of thunder and his stolen childhood,
can John find the missing boy without his personal life completely unraveling?”
His second book,
From the Belly of the Dragon carries the description: “Caught in a Cult People associated
with him have been killed, but Dr. Walter Simmons is a successful man. His books and tapes incorporate psychological principles
with New Age, feel-good spiritualism and are a hit on college campuses. But when his top students join him for an intensive
"training" program, they are actually joining a dangerous cult. Florida Department of Law Enforcement Agent Tim
Porter's daughter, Ruby, is lured in like the rest, the heights of a dream plummeting her to the depths of a living nightmare.
Tim and his ex-wife are driven to their knees for their daughter. But what about Ruby? To what lengths can they go to rescue
her from Dr. Simmons's clutches? Complicating matters is an FBI investigation, a corrupt chief of police, and a mounting
spiritual battle. How much time do they really have?”
According to the book description of
the Void, “Florida Department of Law Enforcement Agent Robbie Sanchez devotes her life to
crime prevention, and it shows: She has no personal life and doesn’t know the meaning of a day off. After all, someone
has to be around to clean up the mess crime leaves behind.
So when Officer Brad Worthington is brutally
murdered, Agent Sanchez is called to the scene along with Brad’s best friend, Detective Eric Casey. The two turn to
Lifetex, the genetics lab near the scene, hoping their elaborate security system might have captured the crime outside.
But what’s going on inside the lab is far worse: a renegade scientist is cloning humans! As Robbie and Eric
pursue clues–and a growing attraction–they are caught in a deadly battle as the clones begin to act on their own
volition…but this battle threatens to claim more than human life; the clones are vying for human souls.”
According to the book description of The Night Watchman,
“Eleven months ago, Ray Quinn was a tough, quick-witted Orlando homicide detective at the top of his game–until
a barrage of bullets ended his career…and his partner’s life. Now medically retired with a painful handicap, Ray battles the haunting guilt for his
partner’s death. Numbing the pain with alcohol and attitude, Ray takes a job as a night watchman at a swanky Orlando
But when a pastor and an exotic dancer are found dead in one of the condos in
an apparent murder-suicide, Ray can no longer linger in the shadows. The pastor’s sister is convinced her brother was
framed and begs Ray to take on an impossible case–to challenge the evidence and clear her brother’s name.
Ray reluctantly pulls the threads of
this supposedly dead-end case only to unravel a murder investigation so deep that it threatens to turn the Orlando political
landscape upside down and transform old friends into new enemies. As Ray chases down leads and interrogates suspects, someone
is watching his every move, someone determined to keep him from ever finding out the truth–at any cost.”
