John Martyn Wilson

Ventenac en Minervois, aude, France

Hello and thanks for reading this.

My name is Martyn Wilson. I’m English by birth, but I have lived in France since 2004. I’ve been married to Kate since 1971, and we have a son, Matt, and a daughter, Hannah, both living in the UK. Matt is a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon and he’s married to Sam. who is a partner in a GP practice. They have two wonderful children, our grandsons Henry and Charlie. Hannah is single, and is Group DigitaL Director at a marketing consultancy in London.

I’ve been involved in marketing communications all of my working life, and since 2002 I have been a freelance copywriter. I love to write, and over the years I've written just about every kind of marketing communications for all kinds of businesses and sectors. You can read my thoughts about marketing (and about all sorts of other stuff) on my marketing blog In My Own Write, a title which I plagiarised from John Lennon, no less.

I've also done some fiction writing in my spare time, and in April 2013, I self-published my debut novel, KING'S RANSOM under my full name - John Martyn Wilson - on the Amazon Kindle platform. If you are interested, you can read how I did this, and whether I am making any progress, on my author-blog.
