Born and raised in New Brunswick, Canada, Matthew Holmes is the sixthborn child of his parents. He began writing his first published works for fan fiction sites in his early teens, and soon after started writing the story which would become the introduction to his ten part series, "The Slave Prince".
Matthew has published four works now; including a short collection of poetry and prose written during times of deep trouble in his life. Other works, such as "Tower of Ashvale" and the upcoming third instalment to his series allude to elements of his past mental health struggles and moral conflicts.
He is currently living in Fredericton, NB with his wife and young daughter as he studies Phychology at St. Thomas University. While his education takes priority, he plans to continue to write whenever time allows.
