Mark is an award winning writer, filmmaker and all round creative misfit. He exists in the UK where he has a wife, two demonic children and a demented dog who chases invisible pixies for a living.
Mark used to be a guy who let a hundred different forms of fear hold his creativity back. He used to write stories and only share them with a few close friends, or they would stay forever locked on an ancient, monolithic PC; never to see the light of day.
He then went through what can only be described as a genetic mutation. He shed his fear, threw out everything he thought he knew about writing and started anew.
