Matt Drabble


Born in Bath, England in 1974, a self-professed "funny onion", equal parts sport loving jock and comic book geek.

From an early age reading so many works of varied authors I took the somewhat foolhardy decision to attempt to write my own novels.

I have always been an avid fan of the Horror/Supernatural genres and find that many great works in this field are automatically dismissed due to their subject matter.

My third novel "Gated" hit the #1 spot on the Amazon UK free Horror chart and when it went back on sale has a high of #4 on the UK Amazon Horror Chart. My follow up "Asylum - 13 Tales of Terror" is an Amazon Horror/Anthology Chart #1

Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
The Dead Zone by Stephen King. I remember being enthralled by his sense of space and time to create fully fleshed out characters and storylines. He has a unique ability to create a human landscape that you feel as though you are living in. I remember finding empathy and an investment in the main chracter like I hadn't before. I was also fascinated by the multiple story strands and feleing like a reading multiple stories within one book.
How do you approach cover design?
The cover design is my starting point for every book. I produce all of my own covers and it acts as a doorway into the new world that I am creating. Without a cover I have no door and I am only looking in through a window from the outside.
