Mark Barnes was born in Sydney, Australia, in September of 1966. A strong athlete, he was also drawn to the arts at a young age, penning his first short story as a seven-year-old. He worked in finance and advertising before establishing himself in IT services management. Currently he owns and operates a freelance organizational change consultancy. In 2005, when Mark was selected to attend the Clarion South residential short story workshop, he began to write with the intention of making it more than a hobby. Since that time, Mark has published a number of short stories, worked as a freelance script editor, and has driven creative consultancy for a television series. Mark is the author of the Echoes of Empire series, published by 47 North. The series includes The Garden of Stones, The Obsidian Heart, and The Pillars of Sand. The Garden of Stones made the Top 20 fantasy novels for the 2014 David Gemmell Legend Award, and was a finalist in the Top 5 for the 2014 David Gemmell Morningstar Award for Best Debut/Newcomer. At present Mark is working on new urban fantasy, and epic fantasy, projects. You can find out more at, his Facebook page at, or follow Mark on Twitter @MarkTBarnes.
