"An artist by trade, Martel proves himself a superior author and editor, too. Of the 20 profiles in his book, Martel wrote 14 and collected the others. Because of Martel's skill, the book reads as if one author wrote it; once readers pick it up, they won't want to put it down."
About the Author
Mark Martel writes about technology and history, and also pens fiction. He wrote most of Dayton’s Children: The unlikely gang who brought us aviation, ‘The Cash’ and the keys to the road. The non-fiction book, Martel's first, profiles twenty innovators who changed our world. Mark Bernstein and other authors contributed several chapters.
Another book on Dayton history is in development, as well as several graphic novels (both fiction and non-fiction).
Mark Martel has also illustrated dozens of book covers, created hundreds of interior illustrations, and drawn many comics, including a biography of former Secretary of State James A. Baker and a historical comic for National Geographic TV.
With wife Kate Martel, Mark co-created DaytonInnovationLegacy.org to celebrate people who are changing our lives. His original articles for the website led to Dayton's Children. The unplanned process proved the perfect way to sneak up on the challenge of writing a whole book.
For 25 years Mark Martel worked as a writer, art director, and illustrator for ad agencies in Dayton, Ohio, when not freelancing. In 2007 he shifted to working online, and has since served clients in over 24 states and a dozen countries. He now lives in Hawaii and attempts to ignore the tropical paradise long enough for writing, illustration and fine art projects.
