Mark Who?



I am the world’s laziest man.

No…really. Not just a bit slack, really, truly, breathtakingly lazy.

Which is why it’s taken me so long to get off my big, lazy rear end and get myself properly on-line.

I’m the author of the HIVE series of books which I hope that some of the people who stumble across this might have read and enjoyed. Or read and hated…

I am fortunate enough to live with the two most beautiful women on earth. And yes of course I’m hoping they’ll read that and forgive me for any one of the incredibly stupid things I’ll do this month.

I have yet to hold down anything even vaguely approximating a proper job.

I did help make video games a while ago but that was not the best environment for someone as lazy as me. This site was put together for me by my best friend who is the Anti-Mark and therefore the world’s most practical man. He is Bobs or Greybreard the Stupid Pirate, whichever you prefer and still fights bravely in the video-game creation trenches. He is also the original owner of Otto who is the cat whose name I stole for the central character in the books.

This is Otto.


Fear him.  Obey him.

I hope you like the site and if you do, feel free to leave a comment or post on the forums. I will try not to be too lazy and actually update regularly.

Unless deadlines are looming…in which case I’ll be locked in a cupboard with a laptop trying to ignore the internet while desperately hacking away at the keyboard…
