WILLIAM MARTIN, New York Times bestselling author of ten novels, is best known for his historical fiction, which has chronicled the lives of the great and the anonymous in American history while bringing to life legendary American locations, from Cape Cod to Annapolis. Martin’s first novel, Back Bay, introduced Boston treasure hunter Peter Fallon, who continues to track artifacts across the landscape of our national imagination in more recent works like City of Dreams. Other Martin novels, such as Harvard Yard, Citizen Washington, and The Lost Constitution have established him as a “storyteller whose smoothness equals his ambition” (Publishers Weekly).  Martin has also written an award-winning PBS documentary and one of the cheesiest horror movies ever made. He was the recipient of the 2005 New England Book Award, given to “an author whose body of work stands as a significant contribution to the culture of the region.” There are more than three million copies of his books in print. William Martin has three grown children and lives near Boston with his wife.
