Whether it's a quest for his first turtle, keeping crocodiles in his closet, or chasing snakes around the workplace, You're Gonna' Get Bit! has a story that all "herpers" and nature lovers can relate to and enjoy.
Mark Ferdinand is a Texas author and performs daily extractions from venomous snakes for an internationally recognized biomedical research institution. After completing his first novel, Fortune on the Spectrum, he decided to compile a group of lifetime stories that brought him to such an unusual line of work.
Mark Ferdinand lives on the South Texas coast with his wife, daughter and son. When not handling venomous snakes, you can find him surf fishing, hunting, gardening, tiki carving, and fixing vehicles.
