About this author

Martha Freeman was born in Southern California in 1956. It is not actually true that pterodactyls ruled the skies then, but her three children believe this.

Martha graduated from Glenoaks Elementary, Woodrow Wilson Junior High, and Glendale High School. Until Martha came along, Glendale High's most famous graduate was a fellow named Marion Michael Morrison. He later went into the film game and changed his name to John Wayne, which you might very well do, too, if you were a boy named Marion in unenlightened times. In 1978, Martha graduated from Stanford University with a degree in history. She remains Stanford's most illustrious graduate if not its most wealthy.

Martha Freeman made a comment on her review of Afterparty
17910129
"Right. That's my point. "
Afterparty by Daryl Gregory
" Part sci-fi, part thriller, part commentary on humanity and society, this is a hell of a novel. Grabs your attention from the first chapter and doesn't let go until the end. The writing is at times darkly humorous and witty and always tightly craf... " Read more of this review »

" This is one of the best books of all time in my opinion. Courtenay manages to speak in the voice of a young boy (through young adulthood)growing up in pre-WW2 South Africa. The reader can't help but root for Peekay and his mentor, Doc. I was sad t... " Read more of this review »
