Mark's debut children's book Space Lizards Stole my Brain was published by Simon & Schuster after a hotly-contested auction.  S&S has gone on to publish other children's titles by Mark including his Geek Inc series, which was shortlisted for the Shrewsbury Children's Award 2014. Mark's first picture book, with illustrator Maxine Lee-Mackie, is called The Burp That Saved The World.
