Biography:

Martin R. Soderstrom was born in a Toronto suburb in 1962. Somehow, he managed to survive childhood, despite himself (If you see him at a Con, ask me what a three year old does with a brick when he's alone in the backyard with a baby bird).

A self-proclaimed loner, books and reading played an ever increasing roll in his life. He still has (somewhere in a box, unless his wife has made good on her threat to enrich the Salvation Army) his set of Hardy Boys Mysteries (the good ones...before a couple of beachboys bastardized the series on television) and what he thinks was his first Science Fiction book, The Runaway Robot by none other than Lester Del Rey.

After high school, on a whim, he chose Journalism over Drama and it didn't take long for him to realize he had little interest in the ins and outs of reporting; He simply wanted to write. By this time, his taste in fiction had evolved from teen science fiction and The Hardy Boys to significant works like Catcher In The Rye, and more popular novelists like Ludlum, King and Block. His first story meant for publication turned out to be a detective story called "Death Hunch."

Today, he divides my time between his wife, Robin, his daughter, Kiersten, his job as a Technical Writer, the never-ending details of an adult life involving car payments and mortgages, and writing.
