J.M. (JOE) MARTIN USED TO LOAD CARGO onto aeroplanes, which is where he got his enormous muscles. That was a lot of work so he started writing comic books and role-playing games and short stories for various publishers. Joe is also the owner of Ragnarok Publications (ragnarokpub.com), and serves as the company’s Creative Director.
He lives in Kentucky with his black belt wife and three spirited wee folk. He is not related to George R.R. Martin, however they do share the same fashion sense.
