Craig Martelle lives in Alaska (God's Country) and shares how he sets writing goals, accomplishes those goals, and walks his dog while coming up with his ideas and developing them.

We discuss how to compare yourself with these authors who are succeeding when some of us aren't, how to practice discipline in writing, and be both traditionally and self-published.


Craig is a successful author, who has been compared to Andre Norton, David Gemmell, and Larry Niven. He’s taken his more than twenty years of experience in the Marine Corps, his legal education, and his business consulting career to write believable characters living in realistic worlds.

Although Craig has written in multiple genres, what he believes most compelling are in-depth characters dealing with real-world issues. Life lessons of a great story can be applied now or fifty years in the future. Some things are universal.
