Malone's Books

Malone was born in Texas and has lived most of his life in the South and Southwest of the United States. He holds a bachelor's degree
from the University of Houston and an MFA from The University of Arizona. He has received numerous awards and honors during his
career, including, in 1990, a fellowship and grant to an individual artist from the National Endowment for the Arts. In recent years, his
visual art has been shown in a number of galleries and exhibitions in the United States and Europe, as well as magazines and books
such as
International Contemporary Artists, Art & Beyond, Living Artists of Today and Hidden Treasures Yearbook. In 2010, he was the
featured artist in two exhibitions at the old Icosahedron Gallery in Manhattan, and, in 2011, World Wide Art Books named him an
International Contemporary Master. Malone is also the author of  three books of fiction, a novel and two short story collections. He now
lives and works at his studio in Rockport, Texas, a small town on the Gulf of Mexico.
