About the Author
Mark Barber lives in Surrey with his wife and daughter. Mark's introduction to the world of urban legends came from the Alex Garland novel The Beach, where the existence of a secret beach is called a 'Kentucky Fried Rat story'. After researching many versions of the same story from all over the world, he realised the power of urban legends, and began investigating how they spread.
