Martina was born in Florida, which was probably the last time she wasn't cold. After living all over the U.S., she found herself in West Virginia where she graduated with minimal student debt and an M.A. in English from West Virginia University. Since then, she has worked as a technical writer, editor, and adjunct instructor.
In her spare time, Martina enjoys comic books, sci-fi, hockey, travel, and drawing things. She has written as a hobby since she was a tween, and recently founded Befuddling Books to publish her work. Her style draws from her love of comic books, combining science fiction, fantasy, and humor. Martina is afraid of Benedict Cumberbatch.
