I’m a writer based in the Twin Cities. I used to be the soccer columnist for the Star Tribune, and maybe they’ll bring that column back some day. I’m also one of the creators of The Sportive, an award-winning Minnesota/comic sports podcast. I’ve written blogs for a bunch of local sports websites, authored nine children’s sports books, and written about nearly every sport under the sun.

Find me on Twitter at @jmarthaler, which is probably the fastest way to get ahold of me if you need me for something.
