About Matthew J. Stott

Originally from the Panhandle of Florida, Matthew J. Stott has had a love for writing creative fiction since the 4th grade. He absorbed every new vocabulary word he could and wrote short stories whenever he had the chance, fine-tuning his craft over the years and publishing a short story of his with his college, the University of West Florida, as well as a Health Communication case study with Oxford University Press, both in 2017.


As an avid fan of works such as Harry Potter, Star Wars, Marvel and Game of Thrones, Matthew's passion is telling fantasy stories with magic - TONS of magic. His goal with telling stories is to immerse readers in another world that feels completely different from our daily, mundane lives, while still writing authentic characters who share the same struggles as people in the real world.

Matthew is a Public Affairs Officer in the United States Air Force, residing in Illinois near St. Louis. In his spare time, Matthew can be found writing, reading, exploring or watching TV and movies with his beautiful wife, Stefanie, his adorable twins, Theseus and Athena, and his sweet pug, Lily.
