About Paw Press and Mark Hayden

Paw Press is an independent publishing company in Westmorland, UK, set up by Mark Hayden. That’s me.

He lives next to the Lake District National Park with his wife, Anne.

He has had a varied career – working for a brewery, being a teacher, being the Town Clerk to Carnforth. He is now a part-time writer and part-time assistant in his wife’s craft projects. Until she started making quilts, he didn’t know that precision ironing was a thing.

He is also proud to be the Mad Unky to his Great Nieces and Great Nephews.
