Brisbane-born in 1966, James Martin graduated with a Master's degree in German literature and philosophy from Melbourne University. He has devoted much leisure time to the study of chess, while developing a love for European languages, including French and Spanish. He has travelled widely throughout Australia, and now calls Melbourne home.
Sid Harta Publishers made all the difference for me as a first-time author, from my initial submissions to being allocated an absolutely brilliant editor, and then on to a fabulous team attending to graphic design and typesetting, and finally to the publication of a final product of which I could only be immensely proud. I think I am correct in asserting Sid Harta to be unique in the publishing landscape, and I am forever grateful to Kerry B. Collison and his team for helping my dream become a reality."
