Books in the Sgt. Win­ston Wind­flower Se­ries

The Southern Gazette - - Editorial - Danette@nl.rogers.com

Martin was born in St. John’s but now lives in Ot­tawa. A vet­eran free­lance writer, his work has been pub­lished in news­pa­pers, mag­a­zines and on­line both na­tion­ally and in­ter­na­tion­ally.

In ad­di­tion to the mys­tery se­ries, Martin is also au­thor of “Change the Things You Can: Deal­ing with Dif­fi­cult Peo­ple.”

Martin’s con­nec­tion to the Grand Bank area is through is part­ner Joan Riggs, who bought her grand­fa­ther’s home about a decade ago and has been restor­ing it ever since.

“Both of us love be­ing in Grand Bank. It’s a beau­ti­ful com­mu­nity. We love to get out and walk along the wa­ter. Just be­ing close to the ocean is good for me.”

Martin said fic­tion writ­ing is much dif­fer­ent than his work as a free­lancer.

“The free­lance writ­ing I do, I have to think about it. Whereas, the fic­tion writ­ing about Wind­flower is pure cre­ative writ­ing. It’s imag­i­na­tion; it comes from my heart rather than my head.”

“A Tan­gled Web” is avail­able on Kin­dle and Kobo and at Chap­ters/Indigo. The book is also avail­able at The Down­home Shoppe on Wa­ter Street and Elaine’s Books on Duck­worth Street in St. John’s.
