Fiction for skateboarders
Ethan Wares Skateboard Series
Real skateboarding, for skateboarders, written by a skateboarder.
‘He’s a better writer than a skateboarder.’
What is Skate Fiction?
Skate fiction is contemporary adventure stories with skateboarding at its core and doesn’t patronise the reader.
The Goal is always to ride (whether that’s achieved or not).
The Antagonist is an authority figure who is against the Goal.
The story is always the Conflict between the Antagonist and the skaters to achieve the Goal.

Mark Mapstone is a skateboarder, a writer, and author of the Ethan Wares Skateboard Series books.
After discovering there was 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 decided he was perfectly positioned to cater this audience.
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 which every skateboarder goes through daily.
