Publishers Weekly declared Matthew's novel, SECRETS OF SLATERS FALLS, "Tragicomic deliciousness!" noting that the "Bawdy, snappy humor catches spark right away." PW also noted the novel's balance between "Class-conscious dirty realism and the prurience of nighttime soap operas."
SECRETS OF SLATERS FALLS achieved semifinalist status in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award contest. Matthew's screenplay adaptation of his novel, ZACH'S SECRET, was a finalist in a contest sponsored by Script Magazine.
Matthew graduated Magna Cum Laude with a degree in Education and Mass Communications earned after his thesis, SEX ON SOAP OPERAS, raised eyebrows and pulse rates on campus. His material has appeared on numerous websites and in four newspapers.
Like most writers, prior to writing full time, Matthew paid his dues in diverse corporate positions. He worked as a producer at an AM talk radio station where he interacted with local media celebrities and politicians.
His career progressed to Corporate Training and Corporate Purchasing. He worked for many years at an international Boston based bank in which his
media skills were utilized in many ways including creating training manuals, writing/producing/directing/performing in corporate videos, and writing corporate-wide communications.
Later, as an Independent Purchasing Consultant, Matthew consulted for a company that was named to the Inc. 500 list of America’s Fastest Growing Private Companies twice during his time working with them.
As a resident of New England and a fan of its spectacular fall foliage, Matthew sets many of his works in small New England towns. While they may look picture-perfect on the surface, you can be sure they are teeming with secrets underneath.
Matthew loves to hear from readers, especially those who tell all their friends about his books! You can reach him by writing to: Matthew@MatthewGrantOnline.com
