Hi, I’m Matt. Welcome to my site.
I am an author of Young Adult and Children’s fiction represented by Stephen Fraser at the Jennifer DeChiara Literary Agency. I’ve written three Young Adult novels and a children’s picture book manuscript — none of which you can read yet. Hopefully, that will change soon enough as the manuscripts get shopped around to publishers. I’m also working on a project about the bookstores of West Virginia. More on that later.
In the meantime, this website serves as a chronicle of sorts for my writing process, personal views and life as a wannabe-published author. Have a look around.
