Author Bio

Frankly, I don’t know how I came around to writing books. My teachers at school all said I could do better. Mr Radley (Maths) dropped me in the proverbial, my sixth form report reading: “Mark and his recently acquired girlfriend’s attendance to my lesson is spasmodic!” Fortunately, Mrs Bullock, (English), extracted every last drop of mental substance from me and fired up what has turned out to be a creative bent.

Successively, as a corporal in the Air Force Police on detachment to USAF Greenham Common, I remember being pelted both verbally and physically by its peace women. The stress of this bizarre experience being the catalyst to me putting pen to paper. However, this was only in the form of a diary… which I kept to myself!

 Thereafter, I progressed my working life and strangely, my writing, once working for the Scout Association. A peculiar and challenging job, I found its eccentricities fascinating and felt compelled to share my thoughts again with a weekly blog.

Subsequently, in 2016, in a bid to stretch the literary sinews and after much persuasion from family and friends, I self- published my first book. Since then, my style and the genre to which I prescribe, has evolved. Comfortably now, I can describe it as ‘quirky fiction.’ I have written and self published four books to date, each furthering my ability, until with my latest offering; “Four-Play,” I find myself on the bandwagon of looking for a literary agent and, or, a publisher. Wish me luck!
