Marc’s 3 Careers

Marc began his Naval career when he was commissioned in June 1968 as an ensign in the U.S. Navy and was designated a Naval Aviator in July 1969.  During his active duty career, he made deployments to Vietnam, the Mediterranean as well as to the Persian Gulf, Norwegian and Black Seas.  He is a combat veteran of Vietnam and Desert Shield/Storm and flew helicopters on combat search and rescue, special operations missions, anti-submarine warfare and logistics support missions.

He has worked with the armed forces of Australia, Canada, Japan, Thailand, Republic of Korea, the Philippines and the U.K.  In 1991, he was recalled for Desert Shield and Desert Storm and during that conflict, was responsible for the operational tasking and employment of 140 helicopters from 14 nations as well as special operations forces assigned to the Persian Gulf Battle Force.

Marc was a helicopter detachment officer-in-charge twice as a junior officer and a unit commanding officer three times.  He retired as a Captain after twenty-four years in the Navy.  He has just under 5,000 hours of pilot-in-command/co-pilot flight time in a variety of tactical military and civilian fixed and rotary wing aircraft.

In addition to the required monthly drill weekends and the mandatory two weeks of active duty a year, on average, he spent more than 100 days a year on active duty, primarily in the Far East.  Yet, Marc maintained a professional career in the civilian world and is truly a citizen sailor.

In the business world, Marc was a “partner” in two different consulting firms; the CEO of an aerospace and defense manufacturing company; an associate editor of a national magazine; the director of advertising and marketing communications for a general aviation aircraft manufacturer; a corporate pilot and the founder of an advertising/marketing communications agency.

Before he retired in June 2015, he was a corporate senior vice president for a 27,500-person business process outsourcing services provider headquartered in Mumbai, India.  He ran the internal consulting practice, worked with industry analysts, helped the global sales force close deals and led special projects.

Marc has authored five novels:

In June 2013 Big Mother 40 was ranked #48 in Amazon.com’s list of top 100 war novels.  More novels are in work and All Marc’s books are available in electronic as well as hard copies through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, the publishers or directly from Marc.

The central character in all the novels is a Naval Aviator/Officer who happens to be a helicopter pilot.  As the plot evolves in each novel, the reader is introduced to interesting characters on both sides of the story.  He takes pride in that the books are operationally accurate.  Historical events that take place during the timeline affect the plots and each book has fictionalized events from Marc’s family’s rich history, his Navy and flying career and his experience in the business world.

The Liebmans have two children – Michele who lives in the Dallas area and Seth who lives in Tehachapi, CA.  Marc and Betty live in North Texas with his wife of 47+ years and dogs and when not traveling in their RV, they spend a lot of time visiting their four grandchildren.

Writing & Getting Published

Writing a Novel

[3.01] Many people want to write a novel, memoir or a history book but they find the effort to be overwhelming and don’t know where to start. Neither did I. I read books, attended conferences, and searched the Internet. And then, I took the plunge and found out that little of what I learned was helpful. After several failed attempts, a process evolved.

Guerilla Marketing

[3.02] One of the “things” that publishers insist a new author has thought through is a marketing plan.  What they really want to know is have you, the author, thought through the answer to the question of “Who will buy the finished work?
