Mark has never won the RITA Award for writing. This should not be a surprise to you. Mark is known for writing fantasy and horror, and a little science fiction. He's never won a Hugo or a Stoker either. Shame.
Mark has written some short fiction in his life, as well as the odd novel (and you can take that whichever way you deem appropriate) and some novellas.
Hopefully you would like to read them. They're like this, but with different words.
He lives in England, like a king, of course, as the English do, eating scones and drinking tea, but only at the appropriate time. Tea is taken at three in the afternoon.
He is married, and has a cat.
The cat is in charge of the household and no one is under any delusions to the contrary.
