Hello there! My name’s Matthew, and I write dark fiction to die for. I write across genres, from Science Fiction, to Horror, to LitRPG, GameLit and Dark Fantasy. The one thing my fiction has in common is that it’s all a bit dark, and it always has kick-arse monsters.
I grew up in Queensland, Australia, and still live there with my family. I’m an indigenous Australian hailing from Butchulla country. I’ve been working a day job since I was 16, but the dream of any writer is to be able to do it full-time.
I’m a narrative junkie, always looking for the next great story to get lost in. I don’t discriminate against mediums. Film, novels, television, video games… if it’s got a great story, I’m there.
I’m an avid gamer, drawn equally to games with great stories and compelling gameplay loops. Bonus if they have both!
Under the pseudonym Matthew J. Hellscream, I am the author of the first successfully Kickstarted Australian Fiction Novel, Metro 7.
