About Me

MaJaTo is the homepage of Mark Towers (or sometimes known as Mark J Towers, particularly for writing).

So, what is there to know? Or, more to the point, what do I want you to know about me? Well, the sections below will probably be the best way to break it down.

Writing

There is a collection of short stories and poems on MaJaTo Scribes blog.

Quite a few were written in the throes of youth, others penned in the odd spare moment that parenthood allows (y'know, at 1.30am in the morning when you can't be bothered to go to bed...).

I'm working on a few projects, mainly children's stories, when times allows.

You can find links to all on-line published work here.

Way back in time I wrote a sci-fi novel but it wasn't up to scratch - I've left it for a good 20 years and lately I've knocking around a few ideas in my head to get improve it. Maybe one day I'll get it completed. However, before I tackle that I've got a film script I'm desperate to write. Daunting, as the only script I've written was on request for a producer of a children's cartoon series which sadly didn't get the funding. Too much info? Yeah. I thought so.

Magazine Columnist

Never rest on your laurels. Or your Hardy. By accident I've become a columnist, of sorts. Ok, perhaps columnist isn't the righit title, but it sounds better than contributor.

I started writing the odd article that didn't quite fit to NorfolkPlaces, or perhaps had a wider appeal. Thinking I had a quirky way of writing that perhaps would play well, I pitched an article to a local magazine, Iceni, and was pleased when they agreed to publish it as a four-page spread, along with a bunch of pictures from NorfolkPlaces.

That article was about going out and about in Norfolk, so I guess I was on safe territory. So, for the next article I approached FQ Magazine with a parenting article about the feeling that the days are passing faster. I've quite enjoyed this forray, so I'll be working on some more articles soon.

Websites

The NorfolkPlaces website was started as somewhere to stick photos of places we visited around Norfolk (England) as a family. The site has since grown in to a listings site of places to visit, eat& drink and where to stay in Norfolk

So, if you're visiting Norfolk then this would be a great place to find out loads about Norfolk.

More stuff

I'll put some more stuff here soon. Scouts honour (I'm not a scout).
