About the Author
After the loss of his son, Mathew spent two years unable to bring himself to write more than a few thousand words of fiction. In 2012, while working as a freelance writer, he took a contract to ghostwrite a novel. During the process he was able to work through the pain enough to complete the work.
With the unflagging support of his wife, Bridgette, and the inspiration of his other two children, Mathew was able to get back to writing his own fiction in late 2012. By the beginning of 2013 he was perfectly positioned to begin an aggressive, and regular, release schedule.
As a long time lover of fantasy and science fiction with a secret lust for mystery, Mathew's debut series, Dire Crimes, is a genre-breaking mix of police procedural and fantasy. The series follows Detective Griffon Dire, a homicide cop in a sprawling metropolis populated by all manner of fantastic denizens.
An introduction to the universe of Detective Dire is available on Mathew's website.
Mathew combines his writing with being a stay-at-home dad to two young children, who he raises with his graphic-designer wife, and their loyal dog, Illy, a natural herder.

Not worth the effort. One of the worst books I have ever read.
