Mark includes his love of surfing, mountain biking, and travel in tales set in Victoria's wild south-west.

In his Young Adult fiction, Mark combines his love of the outdoors (surfing, mountain biking, travelling) with his experience as a teacher in a residential campus on Victoria’s west coast. He believes strongly in the resilience and adaptability of young people when they’re confronted with new and challenging situations.

His writing has won a number of awards and has appeared in Best Australian Stories, Review of Australian Fiction and the Big Issue. Wilder Country is his second novel that won the 2018 Indie Book Award for Young Adults.

This event is free but bookings are essential.  Bookings open on Friday 14 June.
