About Me

Martin Hengst

My name is Martin Hengst. I write things, play games, and generally get far too excited about all manner of geekery.

I have a deep-rooted love of science-fiction and fantasy. The very first novel I ever read (outside of school work) was Dragonflight by Anne McCaffrey. I’d spend the next thirty years tinkering with stories of my own until I finally found the guts to self-publish The Last Swordmage in 2012.

Fun stories packed with excitement and adventure that don’t take themselves too seriously are my favorite and I do my best to write what I love to read.

I’d love to be the guy who sells a million books and is adored by thousands of fans…but really, I’d be happy with a couple hundred. I’m the kind of guy who’d like to sit down, grab a beverage, and talk about fandoms…so if you’d like to chat, I’m all ears.
