YA Author. Alt music junkie. Cookie lover. I write books about dangerous islands with lots of running, mystery, death, and of course, kissing. :) My first novel, NIL, is out now from Macmillan/Henry Holt.

If you make it to Nil....RUN. I'll be rooting for you.:) In the meantime, stalk me on Twitter. And if you're game, join the tribe. #NILtribe

Praise for NIL:

"Matson makes a strong debut with this tense, cinematic struggle for survival on a peril-filled island that may have some readers flashing back to episodes of Lost." - Publishers Weekly
