Author: Mark Engineer

Mark Engineer was born to an English mother and Indian father in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, where his grandfather was a leading diplomat. He spent his early years in India, and came to England in the late Seventies. Mark has had an itinerant life, holding down many jobs – journalist (with pieces in The Times and The Telegraph and, less impressively, Nuts magazine), recruitment consultant, door-to-door salesman and call centre worker, to name but a few. Some he has enjoyed, others he has hated, but none have inspired him half as much as creative writing does. He's now happily married, and settled in Hertfordshire. He's currently enjoying exploring the short form, while seeking that elusive publishing deal for his latest novel.
