M.L. Weaver’s best friends as a child were books, as asthma kept him indoors—and in bed—a great deal of the time. His favorite genres were, and are to this day, science fiction, fantasy, and history textbooks.
Matt’s asthma abated but his love for books did not. Writing novels was always one of his goals but he didn’t manage to put pen to paper until the third year of grad school, which, as he now admits, might have been the worst possible time to focus on anything but research!
After graduating from UC Davis with a Ph.D. in chemistry, Matt moved with his wife and son to the Pacific Northwest.
