Mark Lappin


Hi, I'm Mark. I write books. Well, I wrote A book. I decided to self-publish my book because I wanted to make sure that I had control over how the book is distributed and other boring things like that. I'm kind of selfish like that. My hope for all of this is that I can hang out with a bunch of cool people while I earn money for doing something that I love.

Okay, that was a bit much, wasn't it?

I started writing in 2010 when I was bored during downtime at my job at the time, then moved on to writing flash fiction stories, one of which became the prologue for Riven. Then it was deleted and replaced by a better prologue after Riven was finished. After three halfhearted applications to publishers, it slowly dawned on me that I'd prefer to publish my book myself.

Anyway, here's the boring general information: I'm currently based in Brisbane, Australia, I was born on the fourth of January 1986 and I like writing various forms of fiction. In my spare time, I read and play various computer, board and card games with my friends. I you want to get in touch with me, there's a contact page on this site, as well as links to my blog and various social media sites, or you can email me at heythere (at) marklappin (dot) com.
