Captain Sylvester M. (Marty) Shelton, USNR, (ret.), an active member of San Gabriel Writers League, was a photojournalist skilled in several facets of his profession. He served in the Korean and Vietnam wars. His duties required that he travel throughout the world and with particular emphasis on the Far East.
Shelton earned his Bachelor of Science degree (Physics) from St. Mary’s University, San Antonio, and his Master of Arts in Cinema from the University of Southern California. For several years, he produced a host of information motion-media shows, winning over forty awards in national and international film competitions and festivals. He was elected a fellow of the Society for Technical Communication and the Information Film Producers of America.
Shelton has published extensively in trade magazines, peer-reviewed journals, and commercial publications. After retirement from the Naval Reserve, he completed his book Communicating Ideas with Film, Video, and Multimedia, which earned the Best of Show award in a major publication competition. He continued his writing by publishing his first novel St. Catherine’s Crown. In total, he’s published fourteen fiction and nonfiction books and short stories. His most recent book is Abyssinia.
