Hello, I'm Matt and welcome to my author page. I was born in Swindon in the 1970s but currently living on the Cornish south coast.

I'm a web content writer by trade but fiction is my first love.

How would I describe my work? Well, a friend once asked "have you considered writing a book in one genre without throwing two other genres into the same story?" Until that point I hadn't realised just how much mashing up genres defined my work.

They were right of course. But what else can you expect from a scifi nerd with an archaeology degree?

These days, when not writing for businesses or fiction, I'm usually found somewhere in Cornwall with a camera attached to my face.
