Born in Idaho, raised in Washington DC, Colin Martin has been a life-long Virginian with a love for the sea. When not hiking, gem hunting or eating overly buttered popcorn in his favorite theater, Colin writes urban fiction and paranormal fantasy that ponder the immensity of the human spirit. His characters are rich with emotion, unafraid to take that next step towards greatness.

Colin has penned a number of acclaimed short stories for the web and has published a series of highly successful non-fiction works. "Secondhand God" is his first foray into a full-length novel, with many more to come.

He currently lives in Virginia Beach with his son, Cody.
