About The Author

Mark C. Jones was born on the 3rd June 1970 in Manchester, England, and is a British author and screenwriter.


A 70’s child, Mark grew up on a diet of pulp Horror, Sci-Fi and Fantasy comics and as an aspiring artist, his fascination with the fantastic led to Mark’s first job as a special make-up/stop motion effects artist on Clive Barker’s “Nightbreed” in 1988, as well as concept design on a number of 1990’s projects including Richard Stanley’s “Hardware,” Adrian Lyne’s “Jacob’s Ladder” and “Jekyll & Hyde” with Michael Caine. Film industry work kick-started Mark’s passion for writing and he produced a number of screenplays into the mid-2000’s before deciding to switch gear to self-publishing in 2018, combining his passion for 70’s war films with his love of giant robots to create “Tin Can Tommies: Darkest Hour”—the first in a series of pulp WW2 action-adventure novels about a crack team of robot commandos.


Mark acknowledges Bram Stoker’s “Dracula” and the work of H.P. Lovecraft as early influences, and continues to enjoy the work of comic artists like Brian Bolland, Mike Mignola, and Olivier Vatine.


A sequel to the first Tin Can Tommies novel will be released in 2022 and Mark is currently at work on a new fantasy-horror series.
