Pro skateboarder, Ethan Wares, has been dropped by every sponsor and has one last deal on the table: a failing TV station, Network 27. In desperation to keep their ratings high, filming unique and inaccessible skate-spots adds to the pressure which claustrophobic Wares could do without.
With the ultimate wall-ride found in an old Psychiatric Hospital, the only thing stopping him from delivering an edit which blows people away is a batshit crazy security guard and being zip-tied to a radiator. And then things start to get worse.
The Ethan Wares series is a fast-paced skateboard adventure written for skateboarders by a skateboarder and is guaranteed to keep you reading from beginning to end.
About Mark Mapstone
Mark Mapstone is a skateboarder, writer, and author of the Ethan Wares Skateboard Series books.
After discovering there were no fiction books written for skateboarders with realistic skateboarding in them, and being qualified with a degree in creative writing from the prestigious Bath Spa University, Mark realised he could be the one to write them.
In-between road-trips, an infinite Instagram feed of videos to watch, and discovering bruises on himself which he has no-idea how they got there, Mark uses his knowledge of the current skateboarding world to create exciting and authentic stories that every skateboarder experiences daily.
