Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, Mark Beshara left home on his seventeenth birthday and has treated life as a luscious adventure ever since, settling in places as diverse as Alaska's Aleutian Islands near the Russian cost, the Arizona desert near Mexico, the Caribbean island of Jamaica, Bali, Java, Borneo and Australia, plus some other exotic pit-stops along the way. During his 20 years in Los Angeles his life-long interest in things spiritual and paranormal reached its zenith when he created life-enriching mind-control techniques and taught them to an international audience of thousands including Hollywood movie, TV and rock stars. As a marketing consultant, he produced six albums, three for his own label, one of which received a Gold Album from the Recording Industry Association of America, and three albums he ghost-produced for fitness guru Richard Simmons. His eclectic pleasures include any song by Bo Diddley, any film with W. C. Fields, and collecting vintage film footage and sound recordings of America's premier rock 'n' roll vocal harmony groups of the 1950s. From singing doo wop harmony on the street corners of Brooklyn as a teenager lucky enough to be present at the dawn of rock 'n' roll, his dream came full-circle when he staged his musical heroes in 1950s-style revival concerts in New York and Hollywood in the 1980s and, more recently, when he was prominently (and graciously) mentioned in the introduction to the memoir of a friend who was one of rock's earliest superstars. After several years in Bali, he relocated to Indonesia's South Borneo at the request of the Indonesian government who retained him to transform it into a successful modern international tourism destination. He and his wife now reside on Florida's Gulf Coast and as his worldwide odyssey continues, Beshara is searching for more of life's glorious adventures, and continuing to live life to the hilt.
