Bio:

Ghost Owl: I am a grumpy, picky, unregenerate atavistic tree hugging greenie from Australia who started watching BotP in 1979.

Beta reading: not being familiar with Gatch, GoS or ER, I can really only beta read BotP fics effectively.  My strengths are spelling, grammar, punctuation, dialogue, dialect and characterisation.  I do ask that if you would like to engage me as a beta reader, we discuss your work beforehand and that you spell check it before sending it to me.

Summary: In BotP canon, we hear quite a bit about Mark's father, but all we know about his mother is that her face was in shadow in that photograph Mark keeps on his nightstand. It's never explicitly stated that she's dead. Maybe she's just resting... or pining for the fjords.
