Mark Swaine (1979) was born in Blackpool, England to Glynis Lawford, a hard working social worker and Arthur Swaine. Mark grew up in Rochdale, Lancashire and moved to Spain, Cadiz in 1999 and lived there for eleven years whilst working across the border in Gibraltar working various barman and Construction jobs. Mark eventually moved to Gibraltar to live with his fiancé, where he lives happily with his large family.
He had his first short story/poem published in the local paper 'The Rochdale Observer' at the age of ten and wrote short stories in his spare time. In 2004 he bought his first laptop and began work on his first (as yet unpublished) book ‘Legend of the Red Sun Village: Day of the Dead’. In 2011 he began writing solidly for six years until finally publishing his first book in an intended trilogy 'Legend of the Red Sun Village' 28th January 2016.
His second book in his long planned epic saga 'Legend of the Red Sun Village: The Crenshaw Serpent' was published on 25th July 2016. His third book 'Legend of the Red Sun Village: Interpol and the Public Enemy of Diyu' was released on 24th July 2017. Taking a break from the main story of the Legend of the Red Sun Village, Mark is now focussing on writing short stories set in the legend of the Red Sun Village mythology. The first in a planned volume of short stories ‘Tales from the Red Sun Village Vol.1’ was released on 30th May 2020 with many more planned. Hopefully one day when he has a few more marbles rolling around his head he’ll be able to finish his epic saga Legend of the Red Sun Village’.
