Hi, I’m Matto! I’m an author, independent publisher, designer, and voice actor living in Durham, NC. It sounds like I do a lot, and I do, but I’m not normal. I have an inexhaustible drive to learn and create things.
I'm an author, independent publisher, designer, and voice actor. Because I just can't sit still, I also have a lot of hobbies, like studying Kung Fu, training in archery, practicing bass guitar, building furniture, creating fantasy maps, and exercising 6 times a week.
I also love drinking coffee, tweaking my kombucha brews, and riding motorcycles!

I told my pals in the local chapter of the Romance Writers of America that I’m going to write 9,500 additional words this week, and I’ve got 5 full days to make it happen. I’d like to have this book written by the end of September, edited…
In 2017, I published the first 5 books in the Infinite Vampire series. I did it, but it was a brutal amount of work and it nearly killed me! After the last book was published, I took a short break and finally found a house we wanted. We bought it in Nov. ’17. A year has passed, and I’ve done very little writing. I’ve done a lot of legal work on the Infinite Vampire brand, ran promotions, fixed all known typos and tweaked the book covers, and I worked on setting up the audiobooks, but I didn’t publish anything new.…
