Mark McKay did a number of things before becoming a novelist – van driver, wine salesman,
psychiatric orderly, Santa Claus at a major department store… He also spent many years working in the IT
industry. After studying creative writing with the University of East Anglia in
the UK, he wrote his first novel. Once bitten by the writing bug (for which
there’s no cure), more novels followed.
isn’t writing, Mark is either reading, struggling to master the guitar,
learning aikido (useful research), trying to find time to get out more, and
looking for new and unusual experiences that might one day find their way into
a book. His goal as a writer is to produce another 50 novels by the age of 100.
His goal as a guitar player is to get beyond three chords. He’s pretty sure he
can do it (the guitar bit, at least).
