“I love writing about strong, intelligent, independent women … they are sexy and fun.”
Charles Martin grew up in a small Ohio town. His parents were poor, but by working two jobs, he was able to put himself through college. He has been fortunate to enjoy much success in life. He had a distinguished career in venture capital and private equity, founding two highly successful investment firms that he managed during the decades of the 1980s and 1990s. Currently he runs a hedge fund, Mont Pelerin Capital, LLC, and serves on the investment committees of prominent universities. Mr. Martin has extensive background in finance and technology, and has traveled to the exotic locations featured in the novel. However, the novel itself is more about the intrigue in the story and the alpha female that takes on dominant males and conquers them.
Mr. Martin lives with his wife Twyla in a coastal town south of Los Angeles, California.
