Born in Vancouver, Mark Vulliamy has resided in that city ever since. In his 20s he lived in a series of communal houses while writing plays and acting in mainly grant-funded theatre companies. Eventually he drifted into job security and a steady income within municipal government, initially as a community centre programmer. While working ‘out in the field’ he completed a Masters degree in sociology, then pivoted into a civic management position, where he wrote policy, planning, land acquisition and other reports to inform Council and Board deliberations. Now in retirement he has reverted back to writing more explicit forms of fiction, mainly plays and short stories. Through Thorns is his first novel.
