Hello, I'm Matt!
I have been writing for about ten years. In that time, I have won multiple awards for short stories, including placing 6th in the entire YA category in the 85th Annual Writers Digest Competition. I have also been awarded the Silver Medal for the 2016 Illumination Book Awards for my first young adult novel, Addison's Mark. More recently, I spent some time as a ghost writer for a NYT bestselling author and I learned a lot from someone who has been through it all.
Other than being a writer, I'm a normal dude for the most part. I have an awesome wife who I don't deserve and two black cats who rule over my life with iron paws.
I also love to ask questions, and many of my stories start with one. I believe we're all made to be seekers, but many times, religious beliefs, families, and fear keep us from asking the big time God/spiritual/life questions, and that only hinders us in the long run.
I hope the stories I write inspire you to ask some of your own questions.
But...if you have any questions for me, feel free to use the form below to get in touch!
You are loved,
