"Hi everyone, I'm thrilled to be spending time with gifted author Mark Koopmans today. Welcome, Mark. We'll get right to the questions. I"m really excited to be hosting your blog hop and telling people more about you and your book!

What are your plans for the future?
I’m finishing my first novel, a WWII thriller. Then I plan to tackle a modern-day thriller set in
