Mark Gillespie was born in Glasgow, Scotland. He's a former musician who nowadays lives in Melbourne, Australia with his wife and small menagerie of four-legged rescue creatures.

He writes Apocalyptic Pulp Fiction - fast-paced apocalyptic and dystopian stories with a bit of horror thrown in for added chills and thrills.

He is the author of the Black Storm books ('suspenseful, gut-wrenching, thought-provoking') as well as the Future of London series (a 'masterfully written' dystopian saga in which a futuristic London has been cut off from the rest of civilisation).

What can music teach you about writing?


Translating the lessons learned from one craft and applying them to another. Is this possible?


Of course it is.


Before I wrote books, I was a musician. I’d been playing guitar since the age of fifteen and switched to bass in my early twenties.


It was fun.


I was a bit of a show off in the early days to be honest, especially on the bass. I took to the instrumen...

“We aren't particularly talented. We try harder!”
Joe Strummer

“Isn't man an amazing animal? He kills wildlife - birds, kangaroos, deer, all kinds of cats, coyotes, beavers, groundhogs, mice, foxes and dingoes - by the million in order to protect his domestic animals and their feed. Then he kills domestic animals by the billion and eats them. This in turn kills man by the millions, because eating all those animals leads to degenerative - and fatal - health conditions like heart disease, kidney disease, and cancer. So then man tortures and kills millions more animals to look for cures for these diseases. Elsewhere, millions of other human beings are being killed by hunger and malnutrition because food they could eat is being used to fatten domestic animals. Meanwhile, some people are dying of sad laughter at the absurdity of man, who kills so easily and so violently, and once a year, sends out cards praying for Peace on Earth.”
David Coats
