I’ve been very privileged to spend the last 25 years working as a children’s author and illustrator. The countless titles that I’ve written and illustrated have been published all over the world. My best selling book, The Egg, has been published in 14 countries and is often used as a key text in schools.
I love to visit schools to share my passion for drawing and storytelling. Through my talks I hope to inspire a life-long love of stories, thus improving literacy. In my workshops I show that drawing isn’t a magical thing reserved for the ‘gifted’, but something that anyone can enjoy, given the right tools.
My books are humorous by nature and I’ll stoop to any level to get a laugh... even wiggling my ears. My books aren’t of the cuddly kitten variety so they appeal equally to boys and girls. Book me and I can promise you a very ‘DRAGONY DAY!’

We had Mark visit our school to deliver a whole school assembly and then workshops for different year groups. To say the children enjoyed it would be an understatement! During the assembly both children and staff were fully engaged, even up and dancing at one point! His use of language and story telling ability truly captured their attention and imagination. Throughout the workshops, you could hear a point drop. The children were fully engaged in learning how to draw a dragon which they then took back to their class to use as a writing stimulus. The day was a thorough success, including the book sale at the end, and I would highly recommend a visit by Mark to any school!
