He studied architecture and ancient history at Lehigh University and during a lecture on the history of ancient Egypt, the seed of an idea was born.

Michael Johnston and 6 other people liked Matt's review of Soleri:
Soleri by Michael  Johnston
"I loved this reimagining of ancient Egyptian myths in a fantasy world setting. Just as much intrigue and complication as George R. R. Martin, but without the rampant death of favored characters. Reminded me in a lot of ways of The Emperor's Blades..." Read more of this review »
