A.J. Martinez


Hello there my name is A.J. Martinez and I am a fantasy author living in the state of Connecticut USA. I walk with my head as high as the clouds and my feet on the ground. I murder people for a living (fictional people that is).

My desire is to write fantasy stories that will make one soar with the wings of Icarus. To write heart pounding stories to make one wish that the pages will never end. To write stories in a world beyond Hogwarts and Middle Earth and on to the world of Odealeous. To write stories that make one think of the stars of the night during daylight. Stories that make one see rare colors and hear sweet songs only the sirens sing by a glowing river. To tell stories where the arts of the mystic and dragons seem as though they had gone extinct. I write what I dream about and dream so that I can write.

I am quite a geek and I am a big time Anime fan. I enjoy going to conventions with my friends and rave parties.

My favorite movie is “the matrix” I never get tire of watching it.

That is a short summary of me. Sorry, I am better at describing my stories and characters than myself. Any questions don’t hesitate to contact me.

Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes I do. The first story I ever wrote was actually a thriller/horror. It was a good story or so my friends told me but I was dissatisfied. However I found love in writing fantasy and I made a final decision that I wanted to be a king in the genre.
What is your writing process?
I always start with the characters. The invention of the character is the best part. The comes the setting. After I have the world all together then I think of the story and where I want to take the characters. I think about the plot and the conflict between characters and what is going to drive them and what motivates them. I think of how the characters are going to meet and how their first encounter should have an impact on the reader.
