My name is Martin Hengst. I write things, play games, and generally get far too excited about all manner of geekery.

I have a deep-rooted love of science-fiction and fantasy. The very first novel I ever read (outside of school work) was Dragonflight by Anne McCaffrey. I’d spend the next thirty years tinkering with stories of my own until I finally found the guts to self-publish The Last Swordmage in 2012.
Fun stories packed with excitement and adventure that don’t take themselves too seriously are my favorite and I do my best to write what I love to read.

When I’m not navigating the dark and twisty paths of self-publishing, I enjoy playing Pathfinder, Cards Against Humanity, Fluxx, Chrononaughts, and Antidote with my friends and family. To list the video game franchises I’ve enjoyed would take more space than I’m willing to allot to this page, but suffice it to say: there are many. Of course, as a self-respecting geek, I have to mention my life-long love of Star Wars, so there’s one more box I can check off the list.

I live in south central Pennsylvania with my loving wife, my son, my daughter, chosen family, and two cats. I’m surrounded by love and laughter and it makes getting up every morning much easier.

I’d love to be the guy who sells a million books and is adored by thousands of fans…but really, I’d be happy just with the thousands of fans. I’d also like to be the kind of guy you’d want to sit down, grab a beer, and talk geek stuff with (except I don’t care for beer), so if you’d like to chat feel free to drop me a line.

Please don’t hesitate to connect with me on Twitter or Facebook.

The Cleric
$2 or more per month 0 patrons
Channeling holy power to cure diseases and heal wounds, the cleric is a vital member of any party. Pledging at this tier will entitle you to a free download of Lifeblood, a Magic of Solendrea novella, as well as all previous rewards.
The Rogue
$5 or more per month 2 patrons
Slipping silently from shadow to shadow, the rogue is an expert at resource acquisition and subterfuge. Pledging at this tier will entitle you to a free download of all currently published ebooks, access to chapters and stories as they are written, and all previous rewards.
The Wizard
$10 or more per month 0 patrons
Commanding arcane forces beyond the understanding of normal mortals, the wizard wields weapons of fire and ice with deadly efficiency.

Stepping lightly through thick forest and woodland, the ranger tracks friend and foe alike in support of the party. Pledging at this tier entitles you to a minor "walk on" part in an upcoming ebook or story.

In addition, you will be entitled to all previous rewards.
The Warlock
$50 or more per month 0 patrons
Wielding unholy infernal magic, the warlock is truly a terrible being to behold, grasping the very balance of life and death in the palm of their hand. Pledging at this tier entitles you to a signed paperback copy of the book of your choice, a hand-written "ask the author" letter, and all previous rewards.
Goals
$9 of $500 per month
When I reach $500 per month, I'll set up a dedicated content release schedule so you can know exactly when to expect new goodies to be released.
