Clifton Martin

Biography

I was raised in Perryville, Md. until I went in the Army and after my honorable discharge I resided in Laurel Maryland where I went to Prince Georges and Montgomery County Community College for awhile where I majored in Art and minored in art history. I needed another credit so I took the only thing available which was a Journalists class. I was married and worked two jobs and didn't really have time for research so I made up stories, but my imagination always went wild and I was finally caught. I was told to write two stories, one young adult fiction and one young readers fiction and the class would grade them. If seventy percent of the class graded above a C - I could continue in his class the way I had been. The average grade was a B. At the end of the semester my professor bought two of my stories. A Soldiers Thoughts and The Talking Gilliwok.
Evil Watching is my first novel, I have also written a young adult short story entitled A New Beginning, a ABC picture book for young readers entitled David and Miya's A to Zoo room and a count to ten picture book entitled Ten Little Rabbits. I am currently working on my second novel entitled Newstuff, a short story entitled A Org named Paul, and an outline for another novel entitled Marshland.
I currently live in Elkton Maryland with my lovely wife Linda and together we have six of the greatest children one could hope for and ten grandchildren.

Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Oh god no. That would have been in school. For book reports back then they let you pick a book from the library and a small town schools library didn't have much to choose from so I would pick the oldest and stupidest titles I could find, read the blur and make the rest up. Worked good for a couple of years until I picked an obscure book called Wuthering Heights.
What is your writing process?
I usually just free flow, something pops in my head and I start writing until I am tired.
