About Mark Bilsborough
Mark Bilsborough learned his craft on Brunel University ‘s creative writing Master’s programme and the Odyssey Writing Workshop, where he also discovered how to avoid the comma splice. His published works are mainly science fiction with occasional forays into fantasy and can be found in various places online and through his Amazon page. He is currently working on a time travel novel which, ironically, is going to require time travel for him to find the time to finish it.
