Having grown up with an intense passion for reading and writing, Mark started writing when he was thirteen years old, was drawn to bookselling and has remained in the industry, wearing many different hats, since 1992.

In the past half dozen years, most people would recognize his face and his voice as "Mark From Kobo" (a running joke related to his most recent visibility in the industry heading up Kobo's self-publishing platform, Kobo Writing Life, combined with the fact that Lefebvre is rather difficult for most non-French people to spell or pronounce).

But regardless of which hat Mark is wearing, he usually defaults to the title of "Book Nerd."
