Marty Duncan, BA, MAT, ED.D. served in the US Navy during the Vietnam era. He taught English and journalism before embarking on a thirty-year career as a public school superintendent.
Duncan turned to historical fiction in his early retirement. His first novel, 'Gold…Then Iron' takes place in the Iron Range of Minnesota just prior to World War II. 'Iron Lake Burning' relives Minnesota’s longest teachers’ strike, while his novel of the Dakota/Sioux war of 1862 became the trilogy Black Powder, Gray Hope: I Vengeance; II A Civil War Romance; III New Americans. See all his novels at www.martyduncan.us.
Two new novels in 2016: Shin’ar, My Love was inspired by Von Daniken’s Chariots of the Gods and a moment of clarity while visiting Sacsayhuaman, outside Cuzco, Peru. Duncan came to the conclusion that the Incans could not possibly have built such a monolithic structure—raising a question: who did?
NEWS: The Pilot's Mate received the Pinnacle Achievement Award from the NABE Natl Association of Book Publishers in December, 2016. 'The Pilot's Mate' sketches the history of the Anunnaki Lords who ruled the Earth, came to mine gold in South Africa and Peru and built the Sphinx before the Great Flood. 'Pilot's Mate' includes annotated bibliography and end notes (2nd Revision November, 2016).
Duncan lives with his sweetheart of fifty years in southern Minnesota.
