Martin was corrupted early by his older brother’s interests in Heavy Metal and Dungeons and Dragons, and enjoyed reading as a child (Tolkien, Eddings, Salvatore, Weis and Hickman were some early favorites). After becoming enthralled with the appendices of The Lord of the Rings, Martin relished building worlds and constructing languages. He drew maps of far-away places and labeled them with strange characters, even going so far as creating fantasy tax forms after he found a 1040EZ at the local library. Martin started Azure Keep in 2017 to bring great games and fiction to life.

His first works, the Ruma: Dawn of Empire role playing game, and the Tales of Ruma anthology (as editor and contributor), can be found on AzureKeep.com.
