The Wellbeing Research Centre at Richmond would like to invite you to join Visiting Professor Mark Allen, founder of one of the UK’s leading independent media communication companies, in celebration of the publication of his novel, Life Term. The book was published in March 2021 by Colenso Books. During this event Mark will talk about his journey as an author and read sections of his book.

The special event will be held on Thursday 22 April from 2.30pm via Zoom.

Mark shares the fascinating story of his novel as follows:

‘Life Term is a psychological thriller about a six-year-old boy who is sexually assaulted by a man on a riverbank. Many years later, whilst working as a psychiatric nurse, he seeks his revenge. However, despite a successful subsequent career in journalism and publishing, the shame and guilt lives with him until there is some resolution. On one level, Life Term is a page turner, which tells an absorbing story with twists and turns till the end. On another, it is about crime and punishment, revenge and redemption and about the borderline between good and evil.’

Mark Allen is Executive Chairman of the Mark Allen Group, which focuses on providing quality information to specialist communities; in print, through over 100 magazines and journals as well as digitally, through cutting-edge digital products; and in person, through the 200 or so events organised around the world every year.
