John Edward Martin

University of North Texas
Scholarly Communication Librarian
Houston, Texas
I am a librarian, teacher, writer, and scholar, currently residing in Denton, TX. In my previous lives, I have been an English professor, a library gnome, a graduate student, and a hired pen.

I'm also a coffee-shop junkie and a bookstore rat. I love to hang out with smart, interesting, artsy people, cook Tex-Mex and other ethnic foods, listen to live music, play poker, watch scary movies, and laugh at quirky, dark-humored stand-up comics.

I'm originally from Houston, but lived for several years in Chicago, Winston-Salem, NC, and Ruston, LA--all of which are full of beloved friends and memories.
