Although born in England, Mark spent most of his earlier life based in the city of Glasgow in Scotland. Here he met and married his wife Amanda and together they have six children.
 
Mark spent a considerable amount of his career in the financial services sector in a variety of roles and has worked in many countries in both Western and Eastern Europe. His travels have exposed him to wide diversity of cultures which are proving invaluable in his new career as an author.
 
Whilst working in Geneva, Mark suffered a double blow through the unravelling of the global banking and financial crisis which saw an end to his work there, coupled with a relapse of his wife’s cancer.
 
Undeterred, Mark took a career break to look after his wife and children. At the same time he took the opportunity to fulfil a long held ambition to start writing a series of crime novels. The result of this was his first book, McGonnigle’s Legacy, with the central character of Will McIntyre. Mark is continuing to expand the series and is looking to have these made into a television drama series in the near future.
 
Following the untimely death of his wife in 2011, Mark returned with his family to live permanently in the UK and is now based in the picturesque town of Ross-on-Wye.
 
Mark’s interests include Photography, Hill Walking, Cooking and Classic Cars.
