Mark is an ex-rocket scientist with a doctorate in physics so has an unwitting talent for taking the magic out of twinkling stars, sunsets, colourful flames dancing in a roaring fire, and rainbows.
However with three children he has been practicing story telling for many years, before he had the idea to write it down. His short term aims are to introduce other fathers to the world of creative story telling, and to find his feet with short story writing. This will involve him having to appreciate that what he sees as funny does not always accord with other people’s points of view.
He enjoys a wide range of genres from Sword and Sorcery, through hard Sci-Fi to Fantasy and beyond; the main criteria is a good story that pulls him in.
