Martin Dugard (born June 1, 1961 in Maine) is an American author living in Rancho Santa Margarita, Orange County, California.[citation needed] He is known for his frequent collaboration with former Fox News host and commentator, Bill O'Reilly.[1] He and his wife have three sons.[2]

Dugard began writing professionally in 1988.[citation needed] Bored by an unfulfilling corporate marketing job, he began writing articles for endurance sports magazines such as Competitor and Runner's World in the mornings and on weekends.[citation needed] In 1993, inspired by a three-week journey to Madagascar to cover the Raid Gauloises adventure race, Dugard left the corporate world to pursue a full-time writing career.[citation needed] Although he has returned to journalism from time to time, as when covering the Tour de France from 1999-2008, Dugard's primary focus is writing narrative non-fiction.[citation needed] Dugard wrote his first work of history in 2000.[citation needed] . He is also cross-country head coach at JSerra Catholic High School in San Juan Capistrano, CA.[3]


Martin Dugard's works include:

Co-written with Bill O'Reilly

His 2008 screenplay, A Warrior's Heart, was released as a feature film starring Kellan Lutz and Ashley Greene. It was also presented at the Cannes Film Festival in 2011 and was released in the United States on 2 December 2011.[7][8]

For a number of years, Dugard wrote a daily blog entitled The Paper Kenyan offering readers a daily riff on history, endurance sports, and travel.[citation needed] He still blogs from time to time, though on a much less frequent basis.[citation needed]
