Mark was first published at eight, when a local newspaper published his review of Disney on Ice. The next time his name was in print was a life time later at the age of fifteen, when a national magazine ran his review of the Commodore 64. It was downhill from there, with weekly and monthly columns in various newspapers and magazines that funded a rather noncommittal path through university, studying a range of topics including Robotics, Anthropology, Philosophy, Computer Science, and Psychology. In fact so many subjects were studied he was eligible for graduation at the end of his second year, based purely on attendance. He now writes off-beat science fiction books, some of which have won awards. The Tesla Evolution series is studied at school and university-level in the US and UK.
