About me. The short version.


Martin spent 25 years of his life working for advertising companies in London, Hong Kong, Taipei, Singapore, Bangkok and Shanghai.  As a copywriter and a creative director, he has won awards from Cannes, One Show, D&AD, New York, the LIAA, and the United Nations. 

He’s written four historical crime novels. The latest, 'The Irish Inheritance', a Jayne Sinclair, Genealogical Mystery, will be published on June 15, 2016. 

When he’s not writing, he splits his time between the UK and Asia, dancing with his three year-old daughter, researching his family histrory, practicing downhill ironing, single-handedly solving the problem of the French wine lake and wishing he were George Clooney.
