Writes Plays, including the award-winning one act script, A Life Sentence about Dementia, which was inspired by the death of his father from the disease.

Likes to demonstrate his “feminine side” by playing Dame in Pantomime!

Enjoyed a thirty-year successful career as a TV and Radio presenter before becoming a writer including working with one of the stars of this year’s Strictly Come Dancing, Ruth Langsford. Mark was a TV announcer with Ruth at the former TSW Television centre in Plymouth.

Plays golf – badly- but has still managed two holes in one!

Has moved home 24 times with his wife Sandra.

Is a long-term vegetarian and says that he could happily survive on roasted vegetable pizza and marmite peanuts.

Almost killed the American soul singer, Gladys Knight by nearly pushing her off the stage when introducing her at a concert during his radio days – an accident, as he is a huge fan.

Has decided that sleep is for wimps, after a lifetime of being an insomniac and fed up with reading to unwind, drinking warm milk and having a hot bath just before bedtime.

Would love to go into space (his wife would quite like that as well) – N.A.S.A, are you listening?  

Travel through history and time in this gripping debut novel, A Corner of My Heart, exploring the tragic lives of two women – worlds apart! The book is available to purchase from The Book Guild, Amazon and all good bookshops.
