Mark Barnes was born in Sydney, Australia, in September of 1966. A strong athlete, he was also drawn to the arts at a young age, penning his first short story as a seven-year-old.

Morning, Nick.

Thanks for reading, and I'm glad you're enjoying the story.

There are six more books in the EoE story, though the first trilogy hasn't been popular enough for me to write the remainder of the story as yet. My agent is currently editing another novel set in Ia - in a different nation and with different characters - and I'm in the process of writing another Ia novel at the moment.

If I can get enough of a readership, I'll definitely be completing the EoE story.(less)

eCOV_Horizon_C2D2Today I’ve the great pleasure of hosting Keith Stevenson on my blog. Though I predominantly write fantasy and urban fantasy, I love to read science fiction and have recently finished Keith’s debut novel, Horizon. It’s a wonderful piece of work I recommend to anybody, a novel of large scope set in an intimate environment with a tightly contained cast of characters.


Now,

“HOPE AND EXPECTATION ARE NOT THE SAME THING, THOUGH BOTH WILL LEAD TO DISAPPOINTMENT. EXIST IN THE MOMENT, ACCEPTING ALL THINGS AS THEY ARE, NOT AS YOU WOULD HAVE THEM BE.”
Mark T. Barnes, The Pillars of Sand

“EDUCATION TEACHES US HOW TO THINK, INTELLIGENCE HOW TO QUESTION, AND OUR MORALITY WHAT TO DO WITH WHAT WE KNOW. BE WARY THEN OF THE EDUCATED, INTELLIGENT, AND AMORAL PERSON, FOR THEY WILL KNOW ONLY THAT THEY CAN DO A THING, NOT WHETHER THEY SHOULD.”
