Matilda Reyes was born and raised in the Bronx, New York. She’s lived on both coasts, loves experiencing different seasons, and will never say no to a cup of hot chocolate.

Matilda loves books of all genres but has a special place in her heart for urban fantasy like the Dresden Files and the Iron Druid series. She owns more books than she could possibly read and has a passion for buying books from indie authors.

Matilda lives in Miami, Florida with her husband and dog.

The biggest mystery in my life is the location of my phone. I use it for everything and feel lost without it. Someone could steal a manuscript from there if they know what they're doing. (less)

The other part is that it eliminates writing block. While I was writing/editing Order of Vespers, I entered a short story writing contest and worked on Fucked Up Fairy Tales.

Switching to a new topic keeps the mind fresh and synapses firing. (less)

Instagram Live, April 30th at 3pm EST

I'm going live again next Friday, April 30th at my favorite time of day, 3pm EST. It's that moment when the weekend begins to feel real and I get excited for the next few days.

I'll do a short reading from the upcoming Unearthly Magic, take questions, and touch a bit on the future of the Vespers Chronicles.

I might finally get to the street tacos vs. dirty water dogs debate.

Wilkie Collins
“The best men are not consistent in good—why should the worst men be consistent in evil?”
Wilkie Collins, The Woman in White

J.K. Rowling
“There is no good and evil, there is only power and those too weak to seek it.”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

Libba Bray
“What if evil doesn't really exist? What if evil is something dreamed up by man, and there is nothing to struggle against except out own limitations? The constant battle between our will, our desires, and our choices?”
Libba Bray, Rebel Angels

Ernest Hemingway
“Being against evil doesn't make you good. Tonight I was against it and then I was evil myself. I could feel it coming just like a tide... I just want to destroy them. But when you start taking pleasure in it you are awfully close to the thing you're fighting.”
Ernest Hemingway, Islands in the Stream

Chögyam Trungpa
“Are the great spiritual teachings really advocating that we fight evil because we are on the side of light, the side of peace? Are they telling us to fight against that other 'undesirable' side, the bad and the black. That is a big question. If there is wisdom in the sacred teachings, there should not be any war. As long as a person is involved with warfare, trying to defend or attack, then his action is not sacred; it is mundane, dualistic, a battlefield situation.”
Chögyam Trungpa, Cutting Through Spiritual Materialism
