The Viney Agency

MARK POWERS

Ben Kane

Mark Powers has been making up ridiculous stories since primary school and is slightly shocked to find that people now pay him to do it. As a child he always daydreamed that his teddy bear went off on top secret missions when he was at school, so a team of toys recruited as spies seemed a great idea for a story. He grew up in north Wales and now lives in Manchester. His favourite animals are the binturong, the aye-aye and the dodo. 

Mark's debut series for 7+ SPY TOYS was pre-emptively sold to Bloomsbury, who is publishing in 2017 & 2018.

LATEST BOOK: SPY TOYS

In the first of this action packed new series the rejects from a futuristic toy manufacturer become recruited by a secret agency to protect the prime minister's 8 year old son from kidnap.  They are Dan, the teddy bear whose hug could crush a car, Arabella and rag doll who hates children and Flax, the robot rabbit.  Together they are: the Spy Toys!
