Martin Lake lives in the French Riviera with his wife. After studying at the University of East Anglia he worked as a teacher, trainer and company director.
A serious accident meant that he had to rein back his work. He decided to concentrate on his life-long passion for writing and is now a full-time author. His main interests are historical fiction, short stories and fiction for young adults.
Martin has a series of novels set in the years following the Norman Invasion of England. They concern Edgar Atheling, the last representative of the English royal house and his long battle with William the Conqueror. They are available in the series The Lost King.
He moves forward in time for his book 'Artful' which follows the adventures of the Dodger after he has been transported to Australia.
He has also written 'Outcasts' a novel about the ordinary men who were knighted by Balian of Ibelin to defend Jerusalem against Saladin. Their world would never be the same again.
Martin’s work has been broadcast on radio and he won first prize in the Kenneth Grahame Society competition to write a story based on 'The Wind in the Willows.'
Martin has taught creative writing as well as having been a student on several courses.

I so enjoyed the stories in Nuggets. They are fast fiction, designed specifically as quick reads when you've just got a bit of time. Yet, despite this, the variety of the stories is astonishing. Martin Lake gives us a rich seam of nuggets here. Some made me laugh, others gave me pause for thought, all were entertaining. A friend has read them on his smartphone and says they work really well on this.
