About the Author
Matthew failed to plant apple seeds in New York City, London, California, and back in Winchester. Unless it turns out that, while eating an apple somewhat *too* vigorously, he swallowed a seed and one has been growing inside him all this time, providing fresh apples regularly to his internal organs, unbeknownst to himself. In which case the Johnny Appleseed comparison is even more apt than he realized.
He has written short stories which have appeared in such diverse collections as _Fenway Fiction_, _Further Fenway Fiction_, and _Final Fenway Fiction_.
