Matthew O. Duncan is part of the resurgence of Old School Sci-fi. His books are a mix of Military Sci-fi, Fantasy, Romance, and Mystery weaved together with non-stop action. Matt started his writing career as a playwright were, he won a number of awards and had his plays produced on local stages. Yet, he put his pen down in the late ’90s as his writing wasn’t bringing a sustainable income and he needed to focus on supporting his family.
In 2011, with the support and encouragement from his wife Carleesa, Matt decided to work on a story that he had been thinking about for years. Putting pen to paper again he spent the next three years working on his first Sci-fi/Fantasy novel, The Warrior’s Stone. It received such a positive response and glowi

Hi Vanayssa

Most of the awards I've won for writing have been for plays, with a few for short stories. The plays that won top honors and that were produced are Saying Good-bye (Production APW 1991); Tears of a Clown (Production APW 1992) and What Are You Looking At? (APW award 1993, Produced ASU 1994).
As a novelist I have not earned any awards as of yet, but I also haven't submitted to any contest either. I'm still collecting feedback from readers about my work, as I believe I can still improve greatly as a writer. So far I have been getting a lot of positive comments from those who have read my work. So maybe I'll start putting myself out to contest with my next work due out later this year.
Thanks for the question.(less)

The writer is clearly new, but this was a good start. The world-building was long and the story was more about the main characters life than the mystery he was trying to solve. I enjoyed the story and hope the writer keeps writing.

I only got a couple of a chapter in before I turned off the audiobook. It was just juvenile humor that wasn't even clever or original.

Matthew Duncan Hi All. Many of you have been asking about the next book in the New Terra Sagas and I'm happy to announce that it is now available in paperback and e-book. Book #3 is The Prophet's Stone. It picks up with Roy and Katreena a few years after the end of book #2. Those who have read it have been giving a lot of very positive feedback and are already asking how soon I will have book #4 out. The Prophet's Stone


Sherry Thank you for your friend-invite :-)
