About this author

I write the same type of books I love to read: tales of science fiction and fantasy where anything can, and frequently does, happen. There’s nothing better than a rollicking good adventure and my number one priority as a writer is to be an amazing travelling companion for those intrepid explorers who pick up any of my books.

I live in South Central Pennsylvania with my wife and two children. When I’m not working on my next book or story, I enjoy music, reading, and playing games.

I really like hearing from people who have enjoyed my books. Please don’t hesitate to connect with me on Twitter or Facebook. For the latest news and information about me and my books, check out my website at: http://martinfhengst.com.

I think "writer's block" is just an excuse to not do what you're supposed to be doing, which is writing. If I hit a wall on one project, I just switch gears and write something else until the wall is climbable, but I'm never not writing.(less)
Martin F. Hengst Creating new worlds where anything can happen. Being a writer means not being confined by the way things "should" be. That's an amazing feeling.
