About Matthew Morgan

I grew up in Canada and England, then spent most of my twenties working as a bookseller. In between shelving books and arguing about whether du Maurier belongs under “D” or “M”, I read a lot as a way of learning how to write well.

Now, I'm slowly exploring the world and (much less slowly) working on a novel. Having returned from travels in Mexico, I am currently writing from the UK. My first collection of short stories, “Burn the Pages”, was followed by an extended essay called “The Future of Fictions”.

My website, Art Of Conversation, is updated monthly with essays exploring whatever cultural phenomenon has been on my mind lately.
