Full Name: Marty D. Young
Occupation: writer, editor
Nationality: Australian


Marty Young is a Bram Stoker-nominated and Australian Shadows Award-winning writer and editor, and sometimes ghost hunter. He was the founding President of the Australian Horror Writers Association* from 2005-2010, and one of the creative minds behind the internationally acclaimed Midnight Echo magazine, for which he also served as Executive Editor until mid-2013.

Marty's first novel, 809 Jacob Street, was originally published in 2013 by Black Beacon Books, winning the Australian Shadows Award for Best Horror Novel and being nominated as a Notable Indie Book of 2013. His short horror fiction has been nominated for both the Australian Shadows and Ditmar awards, reprinted in Australian Dark Fantasy and Horror ('the best of 2008'), and repeatedly included in year's best recommended reading lists.

Marty's essays on horror literature have been published in journals and university textbooks across the world, and he was also co-editor of the award winning Macabre; A Journey through Australia's Darkest Fears, a landmark anthology showcasing the best Australian horror stories from 1836 to the present.

When not writing, Marty is a Director and Senior Palynologist at MGPalaeo, based in Perth, WA. He spends a fair bit of time in the deep dark jungles of Papua New Guinea, no doubt wondering what the hell he's doing there.

And when he's not doing that, he's working towards his black belt in TetsuRyu, a mixed martial arts style that incorporates elements of karate, muay thai, BJJ, and others. He's often getting kicked and punched or put into a sleeper hold, but for some strange reason, he quite enjoys it...
