Mark Forrest was born in East London in 1970 and grew up in Dagenham before moving to the Essex heartland with his wife and daughters. After a brief stint working in the public library service he ended up in broadcast television where he is currently still working.
Having spent years writing for his own pleasure, Mark finally entered the realm of self-publishing under his own banner of the Ministry of Anxiety, with the first part of the Charlotte Entwhistle trilogy, The Haunted Mansion.
The Entwhistle trilogy actually started several years ago in a small Cornish pub and aided by his wife, abetted by his children and interrupted by the need to earn money, plant cucamelons and battle the occasional Merman, the first book now exists.
A spin-tingling adventure in which Charlotte Entwhistle, armed only with a flask of hot chocolate and a book on phantoms and monsters, sets out to rid a mansion of all its ghostly occupants. Yet on the way, Charlotte uncovers a diabolically evil plan, as well as the strangest ghost hunting colleague ever.
