Mark Walden - Author

Mark Walden’s first book, H.I.V.E., was selected as a winner in Richard and Judy’s ‘Best Kids’ Books Ever’. Paramount has optioned the film rights, and it was chosen as one of ten titles for Booktrust’s Booked Up scheme, which gives every secondary school student a free book. Mark has followed this success with two further titles in the extraordinarily brilliant H.I.V.E. series and was selected as a WBD author for 2009. He is happily married (as is his wife, he hopes) and is the proud father of Megan.

H.I.V.E: Rogue, published by Bloomsbury in May 2010, is the fifth book in the series. H.I.V.E: Zero Hour published in September 2010, is the sixth and H.I.V.E: After Shock is the seventh in the series.

Earthfall, published by Bloomsbury in June 2012, is a 3-D mega-budget action adventure in book form.
