Martin was born in what was to become an Arizona ghost town,Jerome. He grew up in southwestern National Monuments, finished high school in Hollister in central California, and obtained a degree in international relations at Pomona College in order to launch a journalism career. He met his future wife, CeCe, there and they married while he was news editor of the Arroyo Grande (CA) Herald Recorder. Journalism was interrupted by two years in the US Army, much of it teaching missile electronics. He returned to Journalism, at small newspapers in California, Arizona and again California. He led the news side of The Winslow Mail and The Hemet News as each began daily operation. Both have gone out of publication years afterwards, part of an industry-wide trend, but he'd quit that high pressure environment to spend time with his family and follow the leading of his Lord. After an offer to pastor a church in Hawaii fell apart, he and his family returned to Arizona. There he turned to driving school buses, repairing computers, installing and repairing telephone systems, and treating the sick and injured with a fire department rescue service. Finally he returned to publishing and is the owner of Four Craftsmen Publishing.
Martin married his college sweetheart after college and they're well beyond the 50 year mark together.
An ardent Christian, Martin says he met Jesus Christ in a long decomissioned Spanish mission church building in Southern Arizona. The Holy Spirit later trained him in spiritual warfare.
