Matthew is an asexual, transgender author from the wet and windy British Isles. He is currently lurking in the Bristol area, but has lived all over, and has a special fondness for Yorkshire.

Matt writes LGBT novels, both adult and young adult, and particularly enjoys digging into the weird and wonderful diversity of people all across the sexuality and gender spectrums. When not writing, Matt is usually asleep, or crunching numbers at his day job. Free time is not really a concept here.

He is also owned by an enormous black cat. Approach with caution.

New Website is LIVE, Blog is DEAD

New website is live right here!


It’s brand new and quite empty right now, but I have a lot of news to get through in a short space of time plus a blog tour coming up, so that will change. And I’m talking daily posts kind of speed, which I pretty much never did here. So enjoy.


But as of right this second, this blog is closed.


I work a day job and don’t have time to be running multiple sites and all...

"Why do I like YA? Well, it makes me remember that very first kiss, that sense of trepidation with your first real love, the emotional turmoil of being sixteen again. This book brings all those feelings together in one wonderful story.

“Jayden’s brain stalled. He just called you fit! the voice shrieked. It was beside itself. He just called you fit! That settles it, he’s gay, gay as a christening robe, now get your head out of the sink and kiss him! “Um,” he said instead. “You get brain freeze under there?”
Matthew J. Metzger, Vivaldi in the Dark

“I am part of your summers,” Alex says. “I’m part of this world, out here, in the middle of nowhere, with the sun and midnight wanderings and little secrets that don’t mean anything. I’m not part of that world: of your autumn or winter or spring. I’m not there.”
Matthew J. Metzger, Our Last Summer

“You loving me, that’s heavy. I’m not the kid anyone ever relied on. Not my folks, not Lizzie, not the other kids at school, and I thought not you. I’m not special to anyone, never have been. It’s not what I am.
I’m everyone’s summer. I’m the kid that they can mess about with, have a fling with, know for a bit, whatever, then move on and out and up and not have to worry about any backlash or anything. I’m that kid, to everyone. And that should include you.
Only somehow it doesn’t include you.”
Matthew J. Metzger, Our Last Summer

Aw, thank you! And I apologise for the sequel in advance. It's, uh. Dark.


Isabel Hi Matthew! Thank you so much for accepting my friend invite! I loved "Vivaldi in the Dark" and I'm looking forward for the sequel! You're a great writer!

Aw, thank you :) Mind you, you'll want to kill me once you read the sequel. If VitD was tough to write, The Devil's Trill Sonata was like torture :S


Barbara Thanks so much for accepting my friend invite!
