...Somewhere between DARK COMEDY and BIZARRO, between DOUGLAS ADAMS and CARLTON MELLICK III, between CHUCK PALAHNIUK and KEVIN L. DONIHE, between LLOYD KAUFMAN and ANDY KAUFMAN, between DAVID WONG and DAVID WONG, there's MARC RICHARD. A writer who doesn't mind exploiting his mental illness for fun and profit, he has been accused of putting his readers through an emotional rollercoaster; often having them laughing and crying at the same time.

Marc Richard was born in a picturesque, yet at the same time crappy, town called "Rumford". The name alone says it all, doesn't it? "Rumford." It was a Maine mill town, and there wasn't much to do but drink, get pregnant, and tip over cows. Marc did none of these. He was much too busy writing stories. He decided to write horror tales, but failed miserably. He read these stories to his cousins in his grandmother's attic, and they seemed to get a kick out of them, but they were much younger than he was, and in his opinion, the tales stunk. Much like the mill town they lived in.

After graduation he decided that he would go to college and major in medicine. He never got the hang of chemistry and physics, however, and he soon realized that if he were a dying patient, he would not want to be treated by someone with a C average.
He briefly moved to Wisconsin, where he was soon arrested for consuming way too much cheese.

Marc moved back to Maine and continued his education at the University of Southern Maine, where he studied psychology. He grew himself a fly mustache and got near enough to a 4.0 average that he felt comfortable diagnosing himself at that point. He found he had acute Borderline Personality Disorder. Acute Borderline Personality Disorder, he found out, was any personality disorder that was less than ninety degrees. 

Of course, he was happiest when he shaved off his mustache and instead grew a full goatee. He is now living in Portland, Maine with his goatee, his fiancée Jill, and his dog Mia. He is not afraid of the oxford comma.
