Mark Lemon is an award-winning children’s author, publisher and, most recently, podcaster. His father’s murder when Mark was a child turned his world upside down. Following a frank feature published in the Guardian, My Dad’s Murder Didn’t Break Me, Mark decided to draw upon his childhood trauma to publish his fifth children’s book, The Magical Wood.

This award-winning book, praised by families coping with grief, was written to help open up the difficult conversations around grief and death. In 2019, Mark launched his podcast aimed at children and young adults, Grief Is My Superpower. It ranked in iTunes’ Top 10 Health and Fitness Charts.
