Martin Sowery was born in Leeds and has lived in Nice, London and Madrid but mostly Yorkshire. Despite failing to be sacked from various jobs including milkman, chemist, nurse and teacher, most of his working life was spent as a corporate lawyer working in the UK and other jurisdictions.
His first novel, Sing Like You Know the Words, was published in June 2012. It was followed in 2013 by The Disappearance of Jonathan Bloom. Both books continue to be popular on Amazon/Kindle. A collection of stories for children, Sandgate Tales (with illustrations by Thomas Softley) has also been published and another story collection (Arrivals and Departures) is available on Amazon/Kindle. Some of those stories (and others) may be found on this site in more or less developed forms .
Martin claims to have many other projects close to completion, including The Market; of which the (prototype) first instalment, called Slouchers is published free on this site.
