William Martin

New York Times bestselling author William Martin is a historical fiction writer of legendary American locations, from Cape Cod to Annapolis to The City of Dreams. His first novel, Back Bay, introduced Boston treasure hunter Peter Fallon, who is still tracking artifacts across the landscape of the nation. Bound for Gold is the sixth Peter Fallon novel and Martin's eleventh book. Martin has also written an award-winning PBS documentary and a cult classic horror movie. He was the recipient of the 2005 New England Book Award, given to "an author whose body of work stands as a significant contribution to the culture of the region." In 2015 he won the Samuel Eliot Morison Award for four decades of bringing history to life. He and his wife live near Boston, the city that his recurring character, Peter Fallon, calls home, and he has three grown children.
