A native Texan with over fourteen books in her repertoire, J.R. Martin, lives on a Texas ranch where the midnight oil is often burned as the characters in her books take on a life of their own. She loves being a wordsmith. Through the characters in her books, she travels the world and enjoys the adventures and intrigue the fictional characters impart.
“I’ve seen the world through the eyes of my characters, whom I love. When I have to kill one off it breaks my heart.” Martin says.
