The Magpies is the book that changed my life because it sold so well and allowed me to become a full-time writer, so that one will always be special. But I think Follow You Home is a better book.

Of my co-written books, my favourite is From the Cradle. (less)

More of Mark's books…
“She took out an Ian McEwan book, flicked through it and said, ‘I love this. I can’t bear people who don’t read. I think they must have something wrong with them, don’t you?’ ‘I guess so.’ ‘Books, music, art, films.’ She held up her glass. ‘Good wine. It’s what life’s all about.’ I held up my own glass. ‘To books, music, art, films and wine.”
Mark Edwards, Because She Loves Me

“We used to say that we loved each other but, looking back, I think we said it more because we felt we should.”
Mark Edwards, Because She Loves Me

“This was life, really lived, really experienced, a passage of magic that would flash before our eyes when we died.”
Mark Edwards, Follow You Home
