About the author

Born and raised a Minnesota farm-boy, Mark Abramson has lived in San Francisco so long he’s a native. Not only did he survive the worst of the AIDS years in California, but also the Reagan era AND both Bush administrations. He is thrilled that the Beach Reading series, his first foray into fiction, has been so successful and he is grateful to the loyal fans of Tim, Aunt Ruth, Artie and the rest of the gang.

Like Tim Snow, Mark Abramson grew up in Minnesota and once worked as a waiter in the Castro, but Mark is better known as a bartender and a co-producer with the late Jim Cvitanich of “MEN BEHIND BARS, the Bartenders’ Folly” an annual AIDS benefit, as well as “PIER PRESSURE” and “HIGH TEA” both mega-dance parties on the piers of San Francisco.

Like Tim Snow, Mark had an Aunt Ruth Taylor, but Mark’s late maternal grandmother wasn’t a psychic. His other grandmother might have been, but she died before he was born.

In addition to the Beach Reading series, Mark has also written several non fiction memoirs recounting true tales from the great mecca before AIDS-including adventures with old friends such as John Preston, Rita Rockett, Randy Shilts and Al Parker.
