A former BBC writer, editor, journalist, and Web producer, Mark has worked in all the new and traditional medias and was based in London for most of his working life until 2008, when he relocated to Valencia in Spain to de-stress and write novels. He can most often be found at the base of a palm tree, hammering at a laptop.

By the end of the year, it will be nine novels. My current project currently stands at 130,000 words. I’m two chapters into the third act, which means the total length may well touch 200,000, giving it... Read more of this blog post »

This is a novel that appears on pretty much every “ten best supernatural novels” list I’ve ever seen. Does it deserve the hype? No. For sure, it’s well-written and the story is a good one, but it’s too long, the plot slumps in too many places, and th ...more
