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 Impact of Words on a Writer

Matthew Duncan Matthew Duncan

Have you ever chased a dream? Decided you were going to do something and put 100% of yourself into it no matter how hard it was or how many people told you that you could not do it. For most authors, that is how they would describe writing their first book; myself included. But I didn’t just want to write a book. I wanted to be a full-time writer who sold enough books to support Read more of this blog post »

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 :-)
