Mark McElroy

I’m Mark McElroy, a professional creative, storyteller, and writer living in New Albany, Mississippi. I moved here from Atlanta, Georgia, and The New Albany Blog is my way of processing the charms and changes associated with that transition. is where I share information, insight, and inspiration. If you’ll subscribe, you’ll never miss a post! (New posts come out about once a week: sometimes a little more, sometimes a little less.)

I’ve got one husband (twenty-nine years together!), two rescue dogs (Sunny Day and Windy Day), and a dozen or so books I’ve written on topics from Apple computers to tarot cards. I’m a reluctant vegan, a pizza fanatic, a not-quite-novelist, a voracious consumer of books and video, and an Eclectic Neo-Buddhist Gnostic Christian Mystic with Methodist inclinations. is my Online Living Room

Instead of posting on Facebook or Twitter, I post here, out in the open, where anyone can read what I create without having to sell their souls or give up their privacy. You can get every post by email by subscribing. (You’ll get no spam from me, ever.)

For now, you can also see photos I take on Instagram.

I’d love to hear from you. Feel free to reach out to me here, or via email at
