Mark Sceurman and Mark Moran's Weird N.J. launched the successful Weird U.S. series, but the Marks always knew their home state had more bizarre stories worth telling. So back they went . . . and what did they find? The pathway of a doctor's office paved with tombstones, a bowling-ball pyramid, and a church for birds, just for starters. Visit haunted houses, chat with ghosts, and travel down cursed roads--it's all part of the long, strange trip known as Weird N.J.
Mark Moran graduated from Parsons School of Design in New York City, where he studied fine art, illustration, and photography. He lives with his wife, Barbara, and their two daughters in a boring suburban New Jersey neighborhood (when he is not out tracking down satanic albino cannibals).
Mark Sceurman blended his love for New Jersey and his affection for the strange into a magazine called Weird N.J. The response was overwhelming, beginning a journey to uncover little-known weird stories about the other 49 states. Mark lives in New Jersey with his wife, Shirley, and their daughter. He likes rock 'n' roll and vacations “down the shore,” and in high school was voted “most likely to spontaneously combust.” So far it hasn't happened.
