Author Bio

MARK DUPRE is a pastor, film professor, speaker, and musician. He’s motivated by a desire to help all people, especially young ones, become successful adults in every aspect of their lives. Mark lives just outside Rochester, New York, with his wife, Diane. They have three children and an ever-growing number of grandchildren, even though Mark is still nineteen in his mind.


Editorial Reviews

For a good, solid learning experience with a smattering of rich humor, I suggest you take hold of Mark DuPre’s How to Act Like a Grown-up. You won’t want to put it down until you are finished. I am still smiling.

—Gavin MacLeod, actor, The Love Boat and The Mary Tyler Moore Show

Just before reading How to Act Like a Grown-up I had just finished reading an autobiography of Benjamin Franklin, a man who was known for his common-sense proverbs and his everyday wisdom. I feel that Mark’s book delivers the same theme. Mark addresses everyday situations with an incredibly clear common-sense approach. It is refreshing, humorous, and practical. I believe that it will serve to help and encourage many of us to put on our "adult clothes" and stand up as adults. Thank you, Mark, for opening our eyes to the obvious. Compliance to these principles will make the world a better place to live. 

William G. Baxter, M.Ed., Director of Family Counseling and Mediation Services


This is a deftly written book whose light touch and humorous tone make its serious message easy and quick to understand. Whether we’re young or old, acting like an adult requires knowing and adhering to societal norms, which Mark reminds us are as necessary to individual success as to the success of our civil society. What our parents taught us about appropriate behavior was right, and Mark helps them out by refreshing and updating their advice and reminding all of us about the importance of the social contract and the Golden Rule. And Mark knows what he’s talking about—as a wildly successful university professor for more than two decades, he knows how to deliver information in a way that is listened to and remembered. 

—Dr. Tina Lent, Chair/Professor, Fine Arts Dept., College of Liberal Arts, Rochester Institute of Technology


THIS BOOK IS AWESOME! I read it from cover to cover in one sitting. Mark DuPre’s observations in How to Act Like a Grown-up are invaluable. Mark examines everything from cell phone etiquette to being on time, from divesting to investing. As I read the book, there were moments when I thought, "Yes, get them—finally someone is addressing this!" But then there were those moments when I was challenged to act like a grown-up myself. This is an excellent resource, empowering us to swim upstream in an age of extended adolescence. 

Dr. H. Lee Joyner, Jr., Lead/Teaching Pastor, Christ Church, Gaithersburg, MD


I smiled though this book because it contains very direct instructions from a man who has submersed himself into community—he has seen what works and what doesn’t. Too many adults are figuring this stuff out in their thirties and forties because they didn’t have folks in their lives who were straight-shooters with them on the how to’s of social behavior. Teens and adults alike should read this book and use it as a discussion starter in a small group. 

Heather R. Stevenson, Artistic Director, PUSH Physical Theatre
