Mark was first published at the ripe old age of eight when a local newspaper published his review of Disney on Ice. The next time his name was in print was a life-time later at the age of fifteen, when a national magazine ran his review of the Commodore 64. It was downhill from there, picking up a weekly column in the Sunday Times which funded a rather noncommittal path through university, studying a wide range of topics from Robotics, Anthropology, Philosophy, Computer Science, and Psychology.
In fact, so many subjects were studied he was eligible for graduation at the end of his second year, based purely on attendance.
He now writes off-beat science fiction. Some of the books have won awards.
