Matthew Drzymała was born in Manchester in 1981 and started to write seriously in 2011 when he took part in NaNoWriMo. Since then he has relocated to Liverpool, where he lives with his fiancee, Elaine.
Matthew attended creative writing classes in 2012 and 2013 and was nominated for an Adult Learner Award in 2014.
Matthew released his first works in 2013, the majority being stories in the Bumpkinton Tales series. His first paperback was released in May 2016, a collection of short stories and novella's entitled The Bumpkinton Tales: Volume One which is also available in eBook format.
He also runs the Laid-back Writers Group, which meets once a month at Central Library in Liverpool. This group is aimed at writers of any skill or experience, whether they be beginners or experienced, all are welcome. This group is aimed at being a place where writers can come together and write at their own pace and to help kick-start those who want to write but can't get past a first draft.
Matthew lives in a flat overlooking the River Mersey and, when the weather allows, sits outside and writes his stories in glorious sunshine, which isn't much, so mostly takes place at the kitchen table!
