The Author

Who is Margot Martin?

In her first job out of college, MargotMartin spent her days churning out retail ad copy in a windowless basement of a major department store. She would have been heartened to know she’d end up as a novelist and poet. 


But first, there was a long journey from the department store basement, to a seat at the leadership table in major market broadcasting, to the top spot in her own multi-million dollar global media company. 


This journey, and her personal ones, kids, lovers, and marriages, are the foundation of all the fiction spilling out of her.


Margot’s debut novel, “L A Breaking,” is inspired by the daily dramas played out before her eyes in business and in her life. Greed, sex, betrayal, blind loyalties, office politics, and power games are the coin of the realm. Populating her pages are self-important corporate executives, conniving careerists, serial predatory seducers, and under-the-radar lovers who seem to have come straight from a Hollywood casting office. 


“LA Breaking,” is the first in a series of fictional stories informed from in the trenches moments of Margot’s storied career.  It will be followed by “SF Breaking” and “NYC Breaking”, an explosive book of poems called “The Magic Room,” and a no-holds-barred biographical novel about a multicultural, multigenerational love story that comes from a profound past life connection.
