Mobi D'Ark was born in 1946 in Hampshire, England and grew up in post-war, economically depressed East London/Essex. He left school at the age of sixteen to become an accountant and had a 40-year career in the world of global finance.
During this time he lived and worked extensively abroad, primarily in South East Asia, West Africa, The Middle East, and North America. He concluded his career back where he started - in the City of London.
Taking early retirement in 2,000, Mobi turned his hand to his first love, creative writing, and over the following 14 years, he has written a collection of six Thai-based novelettes, a children's novel, a crime novelette based in the Middle East and three full-length novels, two of which are mainly based in Thailand, and the third in Nigeria.
Mobi is a much-wedded world traveller and has been caught up in many sensational adventures. These include a bloody civil war; a kidnapping; high-level corruption; a murder or two and a few other foolhardy escapades which on occasion, have caused him to spend several brief spells in third-world jails.
Much of his writing is based on these personal experiences.
After living overseas for many years, Mobi returned to the UK in 2017 and now lives in Rutland.
