From an early age, Mat has used a keyboard as his instrument of expression. His range is broad, from the chilling, to the obscure, to fan fiction, to thought provoking, to children’s and YA, and a not too small amount of speculative fiction. Yet, his main area of interest always comes back to the thriller genre.

You may have seen him tapping away in a cafe, bar, on the train, in a plane, in Melbourne, Sydney, Sunshine Coast, New York, Washington DC, Chicago, and the list goes on. This is where he gets his ideas, from you, the streets, and what goes on around the world.
Non-fiction work has mostly been inspired by health issues affecting friends and family, as well as the rest of the world, and to make solutions readily acceptable to the public, especially when the ailment is embarrassing.
Letter writing has also been a heavy contributor to Mat’s skills, whether it be to government bodies or a company, either to request information on a current associated issue or to offer a solution to an ongoing problem with (if a local government) traffic, public transport, spending, banks, etc. And (if a company) an idea for the product so that it could become better accepted by consumers, or in some cases, healthier for consumers.
With a few novels completed, a couple of health booklets, a writing games book, a board game, as well as children’s stories, young adult, and a multitude of short stories, you can expect to see a lot more work by Mat Clarke in the short term as well as the long term.
In Mat’s spare time, he is an actor, builds hand-made furniture, and is an entrepreneur within multiple fields. He enjoys bush walking, hiking, camping, but also loves big cities; New York being his favourite. He is a movie buff, and also loves good pizza.
Theatre Street Melbourne is a new show written, directed, and produced by Mat Clarke: melbourneoutabout.com

Cool book cover, great font & writing style. A very well written mysterious, suspenseful, thriller short story (book). It was very easy to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. Quite a lot of twists/turns. No grammar errors, repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of interesting scenarios & a great set of characters. This could make a great movie or TV series. No doubt in my mind a very easy rating of 5 stars for this book.
Thank you for the free short story (book)
