Mark Osborne writes Novels and Screenplays. He specializes in Fantasy and Horror, with tongue always placed firmly in cheek, because humorless Horror is boring and trite. His writings include the novel Playthings – a novel of alien horror, which is sold on Amazon.com. A suggestion would be to either Google or search on Amazon for Playthings by Mark Osborne. If you just type in Playthings your search will probably not get Mark’s book and come up with some very bizarre results, just saying.
Mark was at one time part owner in the production company Eagle Street Films which he acted as producer/director/writer for the short film Retribution that they created. He has also had a varied career of sorts as an improve comic and actor, performing in the final play to be produced by the prestigious Slocum house Theatre Group of Greater Tuna.
He lives on the Columbia River in Vancouver, WA, not the B.C. one the original, across the river from Portland, OR in the land of beer and coffee. He works as a salesman in the Electrical Industry doing Energy Solutions sales. Trying to save the planet one watt at a time.
His favorite job is writing stories of worlds and scenarios that the audience will enjoy, if not be freaked out by as well… a little. Who doesn’t enjoy that tingling feeling of being a little scared? He also enjoys ice cream and pie, and coffee, and oh yeah… beer.
Summer 1976, a hyper intelligent 10 year old boy must fight to protect his Family on their secluded farm at the edge of a dark forest, as they are besieged by creatures infected by a parasitic goo in the midst of a terrible storm.
