Meet the Author

Matthew W. Grant is the author of several screenplays and novels in various genres including the Slaters Falls series and the Northbridge series.

Publishers Weekly declared Matthew's novel, Secrets Of Slaters Falls, "Tragicomic deliciousness!" noting that the "Bawdy, snappy humor catches spark right away." PW also noted the novel's balance between "Class-conscious dirty realism and the exaggerated prurience of nighttime soap operas."

Secrets Of Slaters Falls achieved semifinalist status in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award contest. Matthew's screenplay adaptation of his novel, Zach's Secret, was a finalist in a contest sponsored by Script Magazine.

Matthew has a degree in Education and Communications earned after his thesis, Sex On Soap Operas, raised eyebrows and pulse rates on campus. His material has appeared on numerous websites and in two newspapers.

Matthew loves to hear from readers, especially those who tell all their friends about his books! You can reach him via his website at: www.MatthewGrantOnline.com
