About the Author

A veteran journalist with 43 years of writing experience, F. Martin Harmon was most recently public relations director at Roosevelt Warm Springs, the historic facility founded by Franklin D. Roosevelt, and before that a sports information director working alongside legendary coaches like Jerry Tarkanian and "Lefty" Driesell.


Coming Soon

After working with leaders of the Roosevelt family on their reunion in Warm Springs, Georgia three years ago, F. Martin Harmon is proud to announce the upcoming publication of his newest book, The Roosevelts and Their Descendants: Portrait of an American Family (McFarland Publishers). Scheduled for release in 2017, it will reveal the two branches of this historic family like never before. Along with his other books and articles, it figures to be another excellent addition to Harmon’s growing list of published achievements since retirement in 2012. He is next hoping for a travel-based coffee table type book featuring many of his best landscape photos and other unique digital images from more than a decade of trips to many of North America’s most picturesque places.
