Hey, how are you? I’m Mark. I’m a writer.
I’m originally from Devon but I live in Manchester at the moment. I work as a freelance copywriter. This basically means I write descriptions of things. Dog food, bras… anything really. I used to work for Deborah Meaden. I once parked my Metro in her parking space at work and got into trouble.
I’ve always had anxiety and depression. In 2006, I started writing as a kind of release, and a year later, began work on a book.
“Panic and the Inner Monkey” is a fictionalised account of my experience with panic attacks, and the monotony of office work. In 2008, I printed 100 copies, and put them up for sale on ebay, advertising on myspace and facebook. I got some press coverage, and a year later my book was published.
My second book, “Piccadilly Line” is a reflection on a generation torn between having fun/staying young, and knowing they should grow up and be responsible.
I am currently trying to grow up and be responsible.
I tweet. A lot.
