Meet the Author

Mark is a part time writer and full time Servant of the Public. His mid life crisis took the form of writing speculative fiction at a very slow pace. While sceptical of the results, his wife maintains that it was probably a reasonable course of action considering (1) the relative low cost of the exercise and (b) the cliched alternatives. Mark lives in the inner west of Sydney Australia with his long suffering wife and two children.

A strange sense of humor makes these short stories worth the read. Definitely not the usual kind of ending. I love that the author explains how or why he wrote the story.
