Get to know Matthew...

Birthdate? 6/2/67

When did you start writing? More years ago than I care to count.

When and what and where did you first get published? My very first publication was a short story called "The Haunted House" in a college literary magazine.

Why do you write? To get the stories out of my head.

Why do you write Science Fiction and/or Fantasy? It's the way I'm wired, I guess.

Who is your favorite author? Your favorite story? My favorite author is still Stephen King, without apologies. If I have to choose a favorite story, I would go with George R.R. Martin's excellent "The Way of Cross and Dragon."

What are you trying to say with your fiction? I can't say that a single theme informs all my work. I do find myself constantly drawn to stories about power and redemption, however.

Do you blog? Where? Yes, at

If you could write your own epitaph, what would it say? "Here lies the greatest writer you've never read."
