Martin Samsel

Founder

Martin started writing when he was just a few years old, telling tales about strange imaginary animals his family kept as pets. He hasn’t stopped writing and dreaming since. 

He’s been writing in various forms throughout his life, which ultimately led him to self-publishing. He’s now a bestselling author writing under several pseudonyms to separate the various genres and niches he covers.

After working in the self-publishing industry for over 5 years, he decided to launch Publishing Parrot to help content creators publish books and spread their knowledge.

Martin is a sports junkie, lifelong learner, and an avid non-fiction reader. He has a dream to rewild the world and restore biodiversity by planting forests using the Miyawaki method. Publishing Parrot is one of his projects to help fund this dream—we dedicate a part of our profits to support this cause.
