Mark Ryan was born in Oxford, growing up in the shadow of the dreaming spires. He studied film at London Metropolitan University, graduating to M.A in Film Theory.
His first novel; 'Pendulum Days', is the first in a series of contemporary fairy tales and supernatural fiction. He has also published a collection of poetry works with ‘Echoes in Space’, ‘Graffitied Heart’ and ‘Drifting in and out of sleep’. ‘Keep it together’ is his contribution to the murder mystery arena as well as his short story collection, ‘Impermanence of things’.
‘The Gospel of No one’ is a poetry fiction hybrid novel, focusing on religious imagery and the inner workings, and broken pieces, of the soul.
His work leans, bends and sways to the metaphysical and supernatural, with a tendency to dabble in the macabre. Questioning questions and searching for answers in the eye of the storm, where there is always hope.
His blog 'Havoc and consequence' is a platform for his current poetry, short stories and video art: www.havocandconsequence.wordpress.com
