MARK BROPHY

700D5E1D-A671-494C-94F3-E31FD6399F8F

Mark Brophy lives alongside the Royal Military Canal near Hythe in Kent. His first book, “The Prince’s Parade” is set in the area where he now lives, a unique wild area on the coast. The book tells the story of Hana, a young girl who moves to the area from London. She falls in love with her new environment and finds excitement but also solace in nature. When she hears that a housing development is planned nearby, Hana enlists the help of some rather unusual friends to stop it.

Mark chose to write this story to explore human relationships and how access to nature is vital for human health. Hana embodies the hope to be found in young people who often have a keen sense of place as part of the environment.
All profit from the book will go to the Save Prince’s Parade campaign, an organisation which has fought for many years to protect this space in Kent.
Mark has visited local schools, speaking to children about nature and engaging with them. He has various ideas for his next book but for now is enjoying talking to people about The Prince’s Parade. If you are interested in finding out more, please visit www.theprincesparade.co.uk
