About the Author
Mark A. Pritchard grew up in the New Forest in Southern England, in a village with more sheep than people. He is the eldest of four siblings, who are mostly recovering well. Pritchard holds a degree in Drama from King Alfred's College, Winchester. Tired of suffering Mark's essays, the Head of Drama suggested he write a screenplay as his dissertation. Words ceased to be mortal enemies and Pritchard has been captured by storytelling ever since. Mark lives in Oxford, UK where he writes, acts and patronises the better pubs. His daughter is now old enough to despair in public.
