Christopher Martin is a native Georgian, a poet with three poetry chapbooks, and a freelance writer whose essays and poems have appeared in publications across the country. He is also an outdoorsman who regularly hikes the trails close to his home in Acworth, Georgia, which is located about 30 miles northwest of Atlanta.
His nonfiction debut, This Gladdening Light: An Ecology of Fatherhood and Faith, is billed as “part memoir, part essay collection, part spiritual journal.” Throughout the collection of essays and poems, Christopher explores universal themes of what it means to be a father, what it means to be a white man living in the South, and what it means to be a man of faith without being tethered to any one religious denomination. He’s also very in tune with nature and the writing of Henry David Thoreau.
