Hello and thanks for stopping by! My name's Mark, I pretty much spend all my time writing fiction stories (Fantasy and Sci-Fi) as well as creating whimsical Poems. I've been writing for over 8 years, and I'm currently in the final stages of editing a teen fiction fantasy novel, prior to seeking publication. If you've had a look around (which I encourage you to do so, if you haven't already), then you'll likely have noticed my weekly running story "Memoirs of an Elemental" (I know, I know...Its a bit of a mouthful). Anyway...every Thursday I deliver another chapter for everyone on here to read. It's a fantasy story with delightful bouts of action, romance and of course, elementals! (Honestly, what is not to love about that eh?) A word of advice though, read chapter 1 first! (Seriously, who jumps straight into chapter 3? No wonder you're confused about what's going on).
Also, in my spare time (Haha, spare time....that's a cute notion) I dabble with photography. Oh who am I kidding, I say I dabble but I bought a Cannon 500D a few years back, so I guess its more serious than mere dabbling (now that i'm reading this, dabble is a funny word when used consecutively) OK, back on track because I'm aware I'm now waffling. So photography, yes, so...I focus mainly on nature, landscapes and Macro photography. Although, I'd love to learn how to take portraits and personal photos of people.
I am up for working on commissions and collaborations. Perhaps you're an artist who is seeking someone to help write a story for your comic, or you need someone to create a poem. Whatever it is, give me a shout and I'm sure I can help you out (oh look, it rhymes!). I am also happy to do Critiques and offer writing and photography advice, so don't be shy!
For anyone interested in the Novel writing software I use to create my stories and books, you can find it in the link below. It's called Novel Factory
