Matthew spends most of his free time creating in one fashion or another, and is currently working on his dark, eldritch fantasy novel The Backwards Knight. He was born with a spatula in one hand and a quill in the other, torn between a world of logic and creativity. Matthew stitches the two worlds together with his love of writing and his day job working with code. Legend has it he once simultaneously baked a loaf of bread, cracked an encrypted password on a sacred document, and rescued a princess from an evil dragon while regaling his daughter with a story about Sir Solomon, the red panda paladin. His short stories have been featured in a handful of independent anthologies, and he has self-published a collection of short stories accompanied by his wife’s art in Arkadia. He loves to lose himself in reading books and is obsessed with all things fantasy.
Matthew says: “I am me, and you are not, and that is okay. I do not think the world could handle two of us that is okay too.”
