‘I write fast-paced adventure thrillers, but always with elements of historical truth packed in alongside the artistic licence. As an Ancient History and Archaeology graduate, albeit many moons ago, I’ve learned there is so much mystery left to uncover in our world; endless possibilities explaining what has been, the now and what is yet to come. My novels pull readers into a world imagined, forcing a re-examination of conventional wisdom and accepted truths.’
Mark H. Jackson
Mark is a qualified solicitor who splits his time between protecting the rights of academics, writing thriller fiction and raising five super children. He studied Archaeology and Ancient History at the University of Birmingham with a nod towards alternative theory, focusing on the relationship of Giza complex to the stars; portolan maps; and the origins of civilisation and religion. It was within this flame the plots for his future novels were born.
