E. S. O. MARTIN
E. S. O. Martin wrote her very first novel when she was eleven years old. It was a 52-page epic fantasy novel, written in her English class, 5 sentences at a time over the entire year. It was an epic fantasy war novel with fairies and orcs and elves and unicorns and humans. She once overheard her teachers consult each other: “There’s a lot of heads being chopped off in this story…should we be concerned? Should we call her mother?” “She just has an active imagination. Let’s let her run with it and see what happens….” And she kept running with it. Learn more at www.esomartin.com.
