Mark Simon Burk has done post-graduate work in short fiction at both Northwestern and Columbia University, though he admits he never completed either program. His work has yet to appear in The Atlantic and The New Yorker. Before turning to fiction and screenwriting full-time, he was an advertising writer and was, among other things, Creative Director on IKEA. "Eating Van Gogh" is the first piece of short fiction he's entered into competition. He swears (though not under oath) that it is in no way autobiographical. He loves Paris.
