S.G Mark is a Scottish born writer currently living in London.
Writing has always been a passion for S.G Mark. Growing up in the Highlands of Scotland, inspiration came easily to her and she was always creating stories and ideas from the world around her. Upon moving to Edinburgh to complete University, S.G Mark was further inspired by the baronial architecture and fascinating history of the city. It would be a place she would call home for nearly a decade, and the location she would begin her writing career.
Following a self driven campaign to write 365 stories in a year, S.G Mark’s hunger for writing was ignited and work on The Dark Places Trilogy began. Originally an idea born on a long summer’s evening in her teenage years, S.G Mark drew upon the inspirations from that night and embedded the characters into a dark, dystopian world.
Over the course of the next two years S.G Mark carefully crafted the Dystopian Britain in which her protagonist Jack Blackwood would eventually inhabit. The first in the trilogy would be released on the 18th June 2014. Blackout Obscura was warmly received and its success spurred S.G Mark on to complete the second in the series, The Cult of The Enemy in March 2016. The final book and conclusion to the trilogy, The Glass House, is due for release in 2017.
Currently S.G Mark is working on an unrelated, standalone book, Folie a Deux, to be released December 2016.
Some of S.G Mark’s most inspiring authors are Philip K. Dick, James Ellroy and Arthur C. Clarke.
