Larry Martin

Biography

I've been writing books for over 30 years, while keeping my day job (physician). This is my 11th book and first full length novel. Some have been with royalty publishers and others self-published. I grew up in Savannah (where the novel takes place) but now live in Ohio (where Sherman was raised). "Sherman's Mistress" evolved out of my interest in Civil War Savannah (see www.lakesidepress.com/Savannah-CivilWar/1861-1862.html) and a desire to convey that history in a unique and entertaining story.
