A successful playwright, Mark Billen has turned his hand to short stories. He says ‘You won’t find The Forest, Whytteford, Humbury, Salchester, or any of the villages, on a map.’ His wonderful locations in which ‘Tales from the Forest’ is set include Whytteford, with a church in ‘a rather isolated spot in a hidden valley,’ and Brookford, where Great-Aunt Brenda lived.
As a successful playwright, Mark continues to have his plays for children such as ‘Cinderella’s Sisters’ and ‘The Love for Three Oranges’ performed worldwide.
You can get copies of Mark’s first book of short stories direct from Black Pear Press here:

Mark’s other works include the stories of Henry and Fred, two teddy bears, and are enjoyed by children everywhere. Mark is very proud that the bears’ hard work has raised over £2000 for Action for Children.
