Justin M. Aucoin, as a 10-year-old boy, fell in love with reruns of Guy William's Zorro on the Disney Channel. He still loves that series and pretty much anything relating to sword play. Pirates, musketeers, masked heroes, shadowy villains, noble steeds, cutthroats, courtiers and the like which have all had a part in what gets him excited in literature and movies today. His love for writing and swords led him to read books like The Three Musketeers, Captain Blood, Scaramouche, Captain Alatriste and the like. He quickly realised there weren't enough swashbuckler tales out there and began writing my own.
He went to Emerson College where he graduated with a degree in Journalism & New Media and a minor in Fiction Writing and his inspirations include Rafael Sabatini and Alexandre Dumas and, more recently, C.J. Sansom, Arturo Perez-Reverte, and C.W. Gortner.
