Mark Zanzibar Boyde
Mark was born in Belfast and moved to Scotland in his early teens. After being invalided out of the Royal Navy, he returned to Edinburgh and studied at Napier University, graduating in 1990 and entering the world of telecoms. Having written as a hobby from the age of 17, in 2009, Mark became a full time writer. His first novel, a fantasy adventure called ‘Rise of the Shadow’ will be published in 2012. To assist in raising funds for struggling UK based children’s charities, Mark created the concept for a set of six children’s books, e-books and audiobooks, entitled ‘The Tales of Mordekai Hagg’, based loosely on the fairytales of the Brothers Grimm.
