Town Crier

When not delivering projects or writing books, Mark enjoys dressing up in 18th century clothing and shouting at people! As his home town’s official Town Crier, Mark gets to travel the world representing that town, Calne in Wiltshire, in competitions. Mark does this so he can be an ambassador for his home town and tell the world about its many virtues. It helps that many of the other town criers he has met are now among his best friends and some of the best people you will every meet. Of course, if he happens to take home a trophy or two, so much the better! Mark is the current Bermuda International Town Crier Champion, an achievement he first attained in 2015 and successfully defended in 2017.

About Mark Wylie

Mark has his heart in the wrong place — literally. A minor defect at birth revealed that his heart lies slightly to one side of where it should be, a fact that always gave him some comfort as a young man should an enraged lover or crazed stalker have decided to go for him with a knife.

Mark has always been a passionate reader and was intrigued at an early age to discover that most authors seem to have had a vast variety of, often short-lived, jobs on their way to full-time authordom (authorness? authism? — no, that can’t be right)… on their way to becoming a full time author. To this end, Mark has worked as a hospital porter (until a misunderstanding nearly caused a patient on the operating table to have a terminal problem), a factory worker (until he was asked to stop being one due to sustaining chicken-related injuries), a barman (until he spent a week being investigated by the police for suspected theft… before they caught the real culprit) and a shop assistant in a Doctor Who specialist shop in London (until it went bust and he found himself helping the owner do a moonlight flit with the rest of the stock).

Mark lives in a small market town in Wiltshire, England with his wife and three sons. When not writing, he is an Agile delivery and project manager, working with high-profile clients in a variety of industries, including financial services, energy and oil & gas, specialising in leading full software development life-cycle, business intelligence and management information projects. He is also his home town’s Town Crier and can often be found in various towns and cities during the summer months dressed in historical livery and taking part in town crier competitions. He hasn’t done too badly in these, truth be told, managing to win a number of competitions, including the prestigious Ancient and Honourable Guild of Town Criers Championship. In 2012, he became the UK National Champion at the first time of asking. He was honoured to represent his town at the Bermuda International Town Criers Competition in 2015 and was delighted and humbled to win all three rounds of the competition to be named winner and Commonwealth Champion. He was even more delighted to be invited back in 2017 to defend his title, which he did. Mark is a bit chuffed about being a town crier, as you can probably tell.
