      We have an amazing, fun-packed week booked for everyone joining us. Once here and settled in, you won’t want to leave as we also have guest authors Jonas Saul, Chris Colmenero, and Rania Stone.

      Mark Edwards writes psychological thrillers in which scary things happen to ordinary people, the best known of which are Follow You Home, The Magpies, Here To Stay and The Retreat. His novels have sold over 5 million copies and topped the bestseller lists numerous times. He lives in the West Midlands, England, with his wife, their three children, two cats and a golden retriever. When he’s not writing or reading, Mark loves karaoke, horror movies and spending far too much money on vinyl.
