Mark Mulholland was born and raised in Ireland, and when fifteen underwent a stroke of genius and left schooling to linger around a second-hand book store where he explored books by their cover or title or by some indefinable inclination. The whole world was to be found in that book store, he says, and everything a boy needed to learn could be learned there. He has been educated in this way ever since.
Mark writes about light, gravity, God, purpose, belief, behaviour, death, good, bad, all the goofy stuff, and he comes at these questions from odd angles. Because what Mark eventually figured out is that nobody really knows anything, so he might as well have a go at it.
Mark is the author of the acclaimed novel A Mad and Wonderful Thing. His short fiction has been published in the USA, the UK, Australia, France, Ireland, and India.
