Matthew Sorflaten


I am a young 23 year old writer based in London, written a series of short horror anthology stories called 'Thirteen', and am currently writing the dark comedy series of novels 'The Creepy Chronicles of Christmas Leaf', which I will be releasing soon. Had a play I wrote that was performed in 2013. Writing short, one-off stories used to be my passion, but lately I have started to write chronologically connected horror stories with a darkly humorous touch to them. I hope you enjoy my books.

Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
I can't remember the exact first story I ever read, but I know it was an Anthony Brown picture book when I was a very small child. Anthony Brown is known for his bizarre and intriguing illustrations, and I wonder if this had an impact on my imagination growing up.
How do you approach cover design?
I approach my friend Francesca Spencer to interpret and illustrate my stories, she never fails to impress, always capturing the slightly cartoonish but nightmarish style which I feel reflects on my work perfectly.
