J. E. Martin has been telling stories for as long as she can remember. As a child, she wrote and illustrated a magnificent two-page graphic novel about gerbils. She won her first writing award when she was ten years old. It wasn’t for the gerbil thing.
Her background is in theatre as an actor and director, and she enjoys some small-town fame as a radio personality. She loves dinosaurs, the ocean, gin cocktails, and competing with herself to keep up with her ever-growing reading list.
She lives on the Florida coast with her husband, where she spends her weekdays writing code, her weekends writing books, and all the rest of the time renovating their mid-century beach house. She also enjoys finding new ways to entertain three lazy cats and one enthusiastic dog. When she isn’t plotting her next novel, she’s plotting her next vacation.
