Mark Ellis is a thriller writer from Swansea and a former barrister and entrepreneur.
Mark grew up under the shadow of his parents’ experience of the Second World War. His father served in the wartime navy and died a young man. His mother told him stories of watching the heavy bombardment of Swansea from the safe vantage point of a hill in Llanelli, and of attending tea dances in wartime London under the bombs and doodlebugs.
In consequence Mark has always been fascinated by WW2 and in particular the Home Front. This was an intriguing, harsh and cruel world and is the setting for the DCI Frank Merlin series. The next novel is due in 2021.
Mark Ellis is a member of the Crime Writers Association and lives in London with his family.
