Marcus Gibson


My first novel was published in paperback 1995. A literary thriller titled 'D', the 10,000 copy print run sold out in several weeks, and with publication a few weeks after my 22nd birthday, 'D' broke the standing Guinness World Record for the world's 'youngest novelist writing adult-themed work' by 2 years.

Prior to publication of 'D', I was recognised in several short story and poetry competitions. 'D' received favourable reviews, and I made media appearances in print and on radio and live television.

I'm now 42 and live in Melbourne, Australia. My professional career has spanned construction worker, script editor, presenter, corporate spokesperson, producer, software developer, business analyst, knowledge manager, sustainability advisor, and environmental manager in a range of sectors including IT, pharmaceuticals, property and finance, civil engineering, and construction.

I have two more titles - 15 years in the making - now on Smashwords.

Read the sold-out novel that broke the record for the world's youngest novelist. "Don't even try this book if you don't have a strong stomach..." said the Sydney Morning Herald. "Thriller, it says on the back. Rather it is like being pulled through a nightmare..." D is the story of Daniel Seaton, lonely and mysterious asylum inmate fighting for his sanity, his freedom... and his life.
