Mark here, do enjoy my short, third person bio below:) If anyone ever would like to know more, don't hesitate to contact me! Also, some of my cover art -excluding text overlays- is provided by Jereme Peabody, ( ) details to be found in my book summaries under the images.

"Mark Derbyshire has studied a three-year course in drama, preceded by two years of chemical engineering, which he found rather boring. His reading career began at a young age and was ignited by the discovery of Pratchett's Discworld series at the tender age of seven. He still rereads some of the books and picks up many more subtleties than his younger self did.

Although having grown up in South Africa, where he had lots of fun meeting (and running from) the local wildlife, he now resides in the land of Eng, specifically in London. He hopes to act in the movies of his books, and has cheated the system by writing himself into them (wink wink, nudge nudge)."

That's probably what I'd put on the inside cover of my books:) To be updated with time, of course. I'm currently slogging away in London with my acting work, and also vaguely progressing with an invention I've been thinking about. 'New Worlds' has also been placed on Wattpad's featured list relatively recently, for which I'm quite thankful. Thanks Wattpad!

Below we have some website info stuff, including my spotlight acting profile:
