Martin was a freelance writer for the RPG industry from 2004 to 2009, with 25 credits from Paizo Publishing, Goodman Games, and many other publishers. From 2008 to 2016, he ran and contributed to the game mastering blog Gnome Stew, which he co-founded in 2008 with a team of veteran GMs. Prior to starting Gnome Stew, he wrote the GMing blog Treasure Tables from 2005 to 2007.

His work and the books he publishes have won and been nominated for a number of industry awards.
