Mark Furness is a writer of crime, black comic crime, and psychological horror. Based in Sydney, Australia, he recently completed his first novel, an international conspiracy thriller in which journalists uncover a murderous network of Western businessmen, Arab dictators and their cronies who have stolen the wealth of developing nations.


The British Crime Writers Association Debut Dagger competition long-listed his companion novel, Five Blind Eyes, which is a work-in-progress about corruption in the global arms industry. His flash fiction has been published by Apocrypha & Abstractions in the US, and he has been a finalist in Australia’s Cowley Literary Award.


Furness is a former journalist who reported on business, politics and sport in Australia and internationally, including postings in London and New York. He has been a political lobbyist, corporate speech writer, gardener, builder’s labourer, railway worker, barman, and clothing salesman.


His psychological thriller, Hugo’s Awakening, set in the Australian outback, is available on Amazon Kindle.
