LM Matthew


I descended from a long line of wacky, smart alecks and concluded insanity is swimming in my gene pool like a school of ravenous piranha. A mid-life crisis confirmed it when I began writing blast-from-the-past fiction to escape my crazy reality. On the plus side, creating quirky characters with agonizing secrets and weaving compelling plots is cheaper than psychotherapy. In my free time, I prepare easy, low-fat / low-carb meals and swim, which are my only health options since I have Inclusion Body Myositis (an orphan muscular disease) that keeps my butt on the sofa or scooter , , , even while I’m cooking.

Consequently, my life as a couch potato has made me a TV junkie. I’m also an optimist who hates depressing outcomes and social injustice, so I enjoy inspirational shows and movies that highlight how far science, medicine, and human and civil rights have evolved and how much change we still need. In my opinion, some of the most amazing television shows that depict this are Downton Abbey, Little House on the Prairie, The Waltons, M*A*S*H, Madmen, The Wonder Years, All in the Family, and The West Wing. As for movies, Driving Miss Daisy, Mona Lisa Smile, Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner, The Secret Life of Bees, The Help, Hidden Figures, and Philadelphia top my list. Although, my work will never equal these remarkable examples, they’ve inspired me to write nostalgic stories that include comical situations; poignant conflicts; romantic, seductive heroes; and sassy heroines in humorous love scenes with snarky dialogue I hope will entertain readers and make them laugh, cry, and sigh.
