Mark Mann: the author
I’m a writer, journalist, parent and environmental activist, originally from the UK but now living in Australia. I spend a lot of my spare time bushwalking, mainly in Brisbane Water National Park near my home on the NSW Central Coast. I wrote The Stone Gate because I started wondering why so many people effectively ignore climate change, even though they “know” it is the greatest threat in human history, but I also wanted to write a book my own teenage children would find exciting. Thankfully, it passed that test.

The Little Green Guide
A few years ago I wrote a “pocket guide” to green living for Planet Ark called The Little Green Guide: click on the book cover below to read the book.
