Product Description

Product Description

Two competitive Englishmen go cycling together in France. Each attempts to out-do the other on the challenging hills as they pass through rolling countryside and villages. Stopping for water in one village they are helped by an odd woman. One man witnesses a grotesque scene in her cellar but keeps the information from his colleague, hoping to punish him for having 'beasted' him on the last hill. Later he discovers the cause of the other man's steely determination and begins to regret his vindictive trick.

More About the Author

Mark Swain was born in Singapore in 1958, where his father was stationed in the RAF. He has lived in many countries, and as a young man found it hard to break the habit of a nomadic life, spending a great deal of his youth hitchhiking around Europe.

With a low boredom threshold, Mark has had dozens of jobs and quite a few careers, but only one wife. Studying Graphic Design at Hastings College of Art, he ran off and joined the Army in search of adventure. Later he found himself travelling the world on the QE2 as a silver-service waiter and going to the Falklands war. Training as a TEFL teacher, he went to Tokyo in 1984, where he met his wife Lorna. Between then and now, Mark has run a language business in Barcelona, customised VW Beetles, been a systems analyst and completed a degree in 3D design. Eventually he stood still long enough to set up a risk management and business training company. At 55, when not writing, he still works as a management consultant and trainer for Systems2 Consulting Ltd, the company he founded as Safe Systems in 1998. He sleeps little, yet there are never enough hours in his day.

Mark particularly enjoys the Short Story form, admiring American short story writers such as Raymond Carver, Richard Brautigan and Richard Ford as well as classic short story writers Franz Kafka and Anton Chekov. He is also a great admirer of George Orwell, John Steinbeck, Norman Maclean and Albert Camus. A collection of Mark's own short stories - including the award winning story 'Special Treatment' - has been released by his UK publisher, Tinderbox Publishing Ltd.

Shoehorned into his busy life, Mark enjoys film, motorcycling, long-board surfing, cycle touring, English micro-pubs, growing vegetables, travelling in his VW Camper-van, drawing, painting and sculpture. He is at home in England, but is constantly drawn back to Asia, Morocco, and to Dingle in Ireland.

Mark and his wife Lorna have three grown-up children and live in Canterbury, Kent. He plans to repeat his epic 10,000 mile Ireland to Japan cycle trip with his grandchildren, when they arrive.
