Born in Ohio in 1983, Matthew D. Walter's family moved to South Africa when he was four years old. Returning to the U.S. in 1995, Matt witnessed the decline and end of Apartheid during his formative years.
Matt wanted to write since before he could write. Something instinctual told him the written word has power, and prior to learning to read the inability frustrated him. They say any good author has thousands of pages of material you're never going to see, which is probably especially true in his case - he started writing when he was seven.
An alumni of Slippery Rock University, Matt currently resides in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
