About Martin Shannon

Writing words to avoid yard work since middle school.

Martin Shannon’s been using his imagination to avoid weeding since he was in short pants. His first series, Tales of Weird Florida, is an homage to the Sunshine State he knows and loves, and spent countless hours riding his bike through as a kid. It’s got mystery, mayhem, and more than a little Magick. He hopes you enjoy the supernatural side of the upside down state, but if not, he’s got a banjo, and he knows how to use it. You have been warned.

Long Biography

Martin Shannon’s been using his imagination to avoid weeding since he was in short pants. His first series, Tales of Weird Florida, is an homage to the Sunshine State he knows and loves, and spent countless hours riding his bike through as a kid.

Martin’s Florida is dark and foreboding, but with a light-hearted focus on the mysteries that make the Sunshine State an enduring tourist destination and home for all things weird and wondrous.

Far away from the soft sandy beaches and neon lights on the coast line, Martin brings us a Florida lost beneath the cypress, full of mystery, mayhem, and more than a little Magick.

He hopes you enjoy the supernatural side of the upside down state he has imagined, but if not, he’s got a banjo, and he knows how to use it.
