About Me

Marty Duncan, BA, MAT, EdD, served in the US Navy during the Vietnam era. He taught English and journalism before embarking on a thirty-year career as a public school superintendent.

Duncan turned to historical fiction in his early retirement. His first novel, Gold…Then Iron takes place in the Iron Range of Minnesota just prior to World War II. Iron Lake Burning relives Minnesota’s longest teachers’ strike, while his novel of the Dakota/Sioux war of 1862 became the trilogy Black Powder, Gray Hope.

Published in 2016: The Pilot's Mate and its companion novel Shin’ar, My Love were inspired by archaeologist Zacheria Sitchen's 'Earth Chronicles' and a moment of clarity while visiting Sacsayhuaman, outside Cuzco, Peru. Duncan came to the conclusion that the Incans could not possibly have built such a monolithic structure—raising an important question: who did?
