Mark Irwin


After graduating university I traveled, lived and worked in many parts of the world. Ship salvage in southeast Texas was one such sojourn - 'Last Of The Good Guys' came from that experience. Born and raised in Ontario Canada, I had solid, working class parents and excellent country childhood experiences; living in the freedom of open space. I have taught at various colleges throughout Canada. I have had brief jail time in five countries; Canada, Texas, France, Turks and Caicos, as well as a brief state sponsored residence in Istanbul - all of it a learning experience (worst stay - Istanbul and distant second -Turks and Caicos).

I live with my wife in a small town in Ontario. My children are grown; one of them a PHD candidate and the other, a soldier - Proud of them both. I don't know how they survived me.

Myself and Steve Pawlett co-wrote 'Th3 K1ng 0f K1ng5' - A mature teen action/adventure story. It is avail;able through Smashwords and its' affiliates.

Presently working on a novel about the civil war in former Yugoslavia entitled, 'Eat The Dead'. Seventy thousand words done and it should be finished early in 2018 -I hope.

I cannot complain about my life - It has been interesting and, at times, challenging. But I am better for all of it.

Bye for now...
