Mark Hayes was born in Yorkshire on the day Julius Caesar was murdered. Though these two events are unrelated and separated by 1926 years, he has occasionally been known to mention the assassination of the great dictator in relation to his birthday all the same. No one, including himself, is entirely sure why he does it.

He now lives in Teeside close to the river and next to a bird sanctuary he has never visited. With a black cat called Boomer who likes to stop him typing by sitting on his lap and demanding attention.

He writes novels, despite the cat's attention, a full-tim

Vivid and engaging

The core idea behind this fun ride through a near future world is solidly imagined and brought to life vividly , with an engaging story. At times it slows a little and I felt it was missing something, yet if I was pushed I could not

“You don’t need to lie to me, not about this. Not about anything really. But you can, if you prefer to. I’m not important. You can tell me you tripped, or caught it on a nail, or whatever. And it doesn’t matter, if you want to lie to me, then you can.” “But don’t lie to yourself don’t ever lie to yourself .”
“If you do, lie to yourself that is, if you do. Then you’ll lose yourself to it and that way lays madness.”
Mark Hayes, Cider Lane: Of silence and stars

Mark Hayes, Cider Lane: Of silence and stars

“Stuff your eyes with wonder. Live as if you'd drop dead in ten seconds. See the world. It's more fantastic than any dream made or paid for in factories. Ask no guarantees, ask for no security, there never was such an animal. And if there were, it would be related to the great sloth which hangs upside down in a tree all day every day, sleeping its life away. To hell with that . Shake the tree and knock the great sloth down on his ass.”
Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451
