Mark was first published at the ripe old age of eight, when a local newspaper published his review of Disney on Ice. The next time his name was in print was a life time later at the age of fifteen, when a national magazine ran his review of the Commodore 64. It was downhill from there, picking up a weekly column in the Sunday Times which funded a rather noncommittal path through university, studying a wide range of topics from Robotics, Anthropology, Philosophy.Computer Science, Psychology.
In fact so many subjects were studied he was eligible for graduation at the end of his second year, based purely on attendance.
He finally left and joined the corporate world before realizing work isn't that much fun, and going back to study. Further writing followed with regular columns for various technology magazines and newspapers around the country. Then as the reality of permanent food and shelter began to bare its teeth, another attempt at the corporate world beckoned as a technical writer, which turned out okay. Shifting from technology companies to resource companies provided the opportunity to travel and live in some desolate and exotic locations where the locals don't like you much.
In 2011, he decided that these shells of books that had been lying around for the last twenty years needed to be finished or burnt. Since no matches were at hand, he finished them and has been releasing them at a consistent rate since.
He's not sure if any of them are any good, but did his best and was relieved to see them out the door, much like a teenager who has overstayed their welcome.
