About

Writer

Mark has been a creative science fiction writer since his school days. His English teacher, an intelligent and humorous man from Dublin in southern Ireland had encouraged him to become a sci fi writer after Mark had won a prize for writing a short science fiction story during the school holidays. The following year, Mark had won another local literature prize for another sci fi short. His English teacher still believed, that it would be a great idea, if Mark were to become a writer or even a professional journalist. Unfortunately, Mark didn’t listen to that teacher’s advice and by accident ended up choosing a totally different career path, thou Mark has still become very successful in other ways. But Mark never gave up on his passion for writing science fiction. Over the years, Mark has worked in many different locations around the world and he has maintained his love of writing, either for pleasure or in business. Some of Mark’s business articles on technology and commercial operations have been published around the world in various publications, books and online, but Mark has always been a science fiction writer at heart as there are always endless possibilities in science fiction. The best science fiction books, sci fi movies and technology ideas can also inspire the many to change the world for the better. Some of Mark favorite books are listed on his Goodreads page and in his LibraryThing books catalog.

Space Exploration

The human race have always been natural explorers, it’s in our genes. Homo sapiens, the first modern humans, evolved from their early hominid predecessors over 200,000 years ago. Then, approximately 70,000 to 100,000 years ago, the first modern humans left Africa and started to explore the Earth. Now, we have the ability to explore space and go back to the Moon. In the next decade, the human race will soon have the technology to land astronauts on Mars and then explore the Red Planet. Mark is a big supporter of NASA, ESA or any national or commercial operation like SpaceX, who wants to explore space as that is our ultimate destiny.
