Matthew Jones

Biography

I was born in January of 1992 and I've lived in the Ottawa region of south-eastern Ontario ever since. I've had an interest in reading since I was a child, with much of my time spent nestled in a corner reading C.S. Lewis' "The Chronicles of Narnia", J.R.R. Tolkien's "Lord of the Rings" or other works similar to theirs. With a rich supply of characters and fantastic settings to push my imagination off onto its own path, I suppose it's no great wonder that I developed a desire to create works of my own. And, much to my delight, I found that I loved writing as a young adult just as much as I had reading as a child. So, if you are one of those willing to give my work a shot, allow me to thank you. I hope that you enjoy the experience from the first word all the way to the last. And if you ultimately decide that my work is not for you, then that's all right; no two people have exactly the same taste, as I'm sure the average dragon would attest.
Happy reading!
