Author's Bio

John Martin wrote his first poem in the 3rd grade and his first story in the 5th grade, and it was from these simple beginnings that a love of writing and the written word began to take hold of him. With a BA in English and an MA in Technical Writing, he has managed to earn a respectable living working as a writer, but his love of literature and the craft of writing has never left him. He is currently at work on his second novel (with a first tucked away on his hard drive), and hopes to devote more of his time to writing once he retires.

He has been married to the same woman for close to forty years, raised three children, and adores his eight grandchildren.
