Mark is a writer, editor and bookseller who was born and grew up in the Greater Sudbury Region, spent many years in Ottawa and currently lives in Hamilton, Ontario.
Mark’s first published story was a short YA humour tale that was released in 1992, the year he graduated from Carleton University. From that point on, most of Mark’s writing fell into the “Twilight Zone” camp of fiction – most closely associated with horror, but also including elements of science fiction and fantasy. His first published horror story “Phantom Mitch” appeared in Wicked Mystic magazine in October of 1993 and received honourable mention in The Year’s Best Fantasty & Horror #7 (Datlow & Windling). Since then, Mark has had dozens of speculative stories published in various magazines and anthologies including Stardust, Bound for Evil, Bluffs and Fear of the Dark.
Mark’s novel I, Death (which began life in 2006 as a serialized novella rolled out on a blog) is forthcoming in late 2014 from Atomic Fez.
