Matthew Ward is a writer, cat-servant and owner of more musical instruments than he can actually play (and considerably more than he can play well). He’s afflicted with an obsession for old places – castles, historic cities and the London Underground chief amongst them – and should probably cultivate more interests to help expand out his author biography.

After a decade serving as a principal architect for Games Workshop’s Warhammer and Warhammer 40,000 properties, Matthew embarked on an adventure to tell stories set in worlds of his own design. He lives near Nottingham with his extremely patient wife – as well as a pride of attention-seeking cats – and writes to entertain anyone who feels there’s not enough magic in the world.

Quotes by Matthew Ward  (?)

“Weak men given licence are always more dangerous than the strong.”
Matthew Ward, Legacy of Ash

“She stared across the muster field where the bulk of the 7th formed up alongside the ochre shields of Lord Strazna’s Knights Fellnore, and the ragtag array of banners and shields Lady Sarravin had assembled. What had begun as a sally looked more and more like Ahrad’s last hope . . . assuming she could bring order to the ranks. To depart the gate as a mob would only invite slaughter, and leave the citadel bereft”
Matthew Ward, Legacy of Steel

“The mists parted. Two Hadari, armour too finely wrought for mere Immortals, galloped into view. One held the captured Fellnore pennant aloft. The other’s helm bore a stylised silver halo above, and a golden mask beneath”
Matthew Ward, Legacy of Steel
