David Mark


DAVID MARK spent his years as a crime reporter walking the Hull streets that would become the setting and crime scenes for the McAvoy novels.

His first book, Dark Winter was selected for the Harrogate New Blood panel and was a Richard &
Judy pick. A Sunday Times bestseller, it was adapted for the stage at the Hull Truck Theatre and was a sell-out. It is back for a second run in November 2018.

As well as the Actor McAvoy novels, Mark has written two eBook short stories featuring the same cast, and a historical crime novel, The Zealot’s Bones – also set in Hull – under the name D.M. Mark. He now lives in Northumberland.
