Mark has been writing novels for years, after his sixth form Maths teacher, reported, “Mark and his recently acquired girlfriend’s attendance to my lesson is spasmodic!” The knee-jerk reaction being the abandoning of his art career and signing on the dotted line to join the RAF. Significantly, at RAF Greenham Common after being verbally and physically abused by its peace women, his night time terrors after years of mis-diagnosis were found to be nocturnal epilepsy. It was then that he began to write more seriously, to help him understand and change the attitude he had towards his illness. Finally in 2016, after much persuasion, he has completed this quirky story and published it. Enlisting the psychic and slightly comedic character of ‘Teacher’ in an intended series, he hopes to encourage people to see the brighter side of adversity, by refusing to allow it, as did he, to get the better of them.
