Mark M. Bello is an attorney, civil justice advocate, award-winning author of the Zachary Blake Legal Thriller Series, and co-host of the Justice Counts Podcast. He retired, about 5 years ago, and began his new career as a writer. Nothing unique about that, right? But Mark did this at the age of 65!
