Typhoid Marty

Biography

TyphoidMarty lives on Grand Island, close to Niagara Falls. In a classic misuse of natural resources, he has yet to go over the falls in a barrel.

TM and his wife, Pici, make a webcomic together called Hell Inc (http://www.hellinccomic.com) which updates on a semi-suicidal "daily" schedule.

They also have a small being attached to their persons, the little one's hobbies include making raspberries at people and falling down.

Currently, TM is working on a Fantasy/Sci-Fi crossover which he would describe as groundbreaking if he hadn't had his pretentanoids out already - he will settle for saying he really likes the concept and will reveal more at the earliest available opportunity.

Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in a little town on the south coast of England - no movie theater little. It being England though, there were at least 8 pubs just in the town center which created an interesting town mix of old people (think Florida but with shitty weather - sorry my mistake, different shitty weather) and angry pissants.

This mix probably influenced my writing a lot - I love getting characters from disparate lifestyles and throwing them into an extreme situation together, probably as a throwback to those times.
When did you first start writing?
I was 11 - I didn't have a computer so I got an old typewriter from a garage sale that had a beautiful clack clack noise as the keys were pressed. The troubles with this mechanism were twofold:

1) Whiteout and retyping.
2) The noise from my typing would keep my gran (who lived with us) up at night. Invariably there would become a point in the night when she would yell down to "Shut that noise up". When I go back over the old pages it is easy to see before and after this event based solely on how heavily the keys were pressed (as afterwards I would be carefully pressing the keys with minimum force to ink the page).
