Kelly R. Martin was born in Rockford, Illinois in April, 1967 the year of the summer of love. He was lucky that his parents were not hippy intellectuals, but instead honest normal working class blue-collar folks.
He attended elementary school at Ellen Styles Elementary and Walker Elementary in Rockford, and subsequently attended middle school at Woodrow Wilson Middle School. He finished his Rockford based education at Auburn High School where he graduated in January 1985 (one semester early). Then he went to the University of Illinois in the fall of 1985 where he studied Aviation, History, Literature, Astronomy, Classical Civilization, and finally ended up with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Rhetoric from the U of I college of Liberal Arts and Sciences in May 1990 (one year late).
In 1991 Kelly Martin started working for the Federal Government in Washington, DC. In 1996 he moved with his job position to West Virginia. As of the writing of this self biography Kelly Martin has continued working for the same agency and is in his nineteenth year of service.
Myth/Logic Press was started in West Virginia in 2010 as Kelly’s way of bypassing the traditional “old school” publishing firms and establishing himself as an “Independent” creator/publisher. Lucky for him he still has a day job which pays the bills for his wife Merly and daughter Moira. Kelly has been inspired by creators like Scott Kurtz (his home page for internet browsing is Kurtz’s http://www.pvponline.com ) as well as Aarron Williams, Ryan Sohmer, and Lar DeSouza (http://www.nodwick.com and http://www.licd.com and http://www.lfgcomic.com respectively) to pursue an “Independent” career to publish these story concepts which have been bouncing around his head since he was a twelve-year-old boy.
