Gary J. Martin writes in the fantasy genre which he has always loved ever since he was the fifth hobbit, ‘No-go’, in Lord of the Rings, (in his mind). Gary also writes poetry which he has appreciated ever since he was a ‘pair of ragged claws scuttling across the floors of silent seas’, a sample of which appears in our 'Channel the Dark' anthology.

Gary holds degrees in Greek & Roman Civilisation and English Literature from University College Dublin, from where he also graduated with a Master of Science in Computer Forensics and Cybercrime Investigation. Gary has been a member of An Garda Síochána (the Irish Police Force) for over twenty-three years, where he has worked in several Dublin Garda Stations and as a United Nations Peacekeeper overseas.


When he is not writing, Gary enjoys skiing, scuba-diving, playing guitar and bass, and totally nerding out with his friends during their Dungeons & Dragons sessions. Gary lives in Dublin with his wife and is a co-caregiver to an elderly Shih Tzu named Fibi.
