Writer (noun). An organism that turns caffeine into books.

Hi. My name is Matt and I live in Melbourne, Australia. I write fiction for adults, children, and everyone in between. I'm a shameless genre-whore. When not writing fiction I can be found building websites, writing copy for businesses, feeding people who confuse you're and your to crocodiles, and performing in bands.

And yes, I do love coffee.
