Mark Wilson was born at the end of WW2, in Caernarvon, North Wales. He has lived in Montreal, Canada where he was at times a taxi driver. Travelled in Europe and overland to India. He currently lives in Bristol, England where he was an English teacher for 17 years, before devoting his time to writing, research, and forms of relaxation.
The two books: "The Stoning of Albert", and "The Present" were written between 1970 - 1975. A book of poems (True Life Adventure) completes this early trilogy. Mark Wilson says that his poetry is his true autobiography, while his novels are pure fiction.
The ‘darkly inventive’ plot of “Alberta” was inspired by his life in the teaching profession; and “The Stoning of Albert” by his days as a young man. His most recent work is titled “Every Now, And Again” and is due out in 2017.
