Martha A. Brozyna earned her Ph.D. in history from the University of Southern California where she specialized in the very popular and cutting edge field of medieval Polish history. For a few years she worked as a part-time history professor at Rutgers University in Newark, NJ. She has published two books: a college sourcebook entitled 'Gender and Sexuality in the Middle Ages,' and another on stock trading co-authored with her husband and entitled 'Contrarian Ripple Trading: A Low-Risk Strategy to Profiting from Short-Term Trades.' When she's not picking dried Play-Doh out of her carpets or vacuuming Cheerios from between couch cushions, she works as a writer. She enjoys making lists of things to do, collecting gargoyles, and reminiscing about the days when she used to travel. She loves three-toed sloths (and the Amazon rainforest). She lives in northern NJ with her husband and two children.
