I was born in England and moved to New York City in 1991. In 1994, I co-founded the monthly magazine Satya, and was its editor for five and a half years. In 1999, I co-founded Lantern Books, a publisher of titles on vegetarianism, environmentalism, animal advocacy, religion, natural healing, and social justice (lanternbooks.com).

In addition to publishing works through Lantern, I've been professionally involved in the creation of a number of books as a ghostwriter. I've written articles and reviews and had three of my plays performed in England.

When I'm not writing and publishing, I'm the co-host of a literary salon based in Brooklyn, New York (Facebook.com/thesalonnyc), and run with the South Brooklyn Running Club (southbrooklynrunning.com). My email address is martin [at] lanternbooks [dot] com.
