Clarence Matthews


I am an on again off again writer. I enjoy the fantasy genre and was always propelled more into the sword side of sword and sorcery. I am by no means a professional author writing is an enjoying hobby for me and what I use to unwind my real passion is in emergency services and I am currently studying Fire Science and Paramedicine.

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I always have, as soon as I could write I would record my own stories. I can barely remember when I was five or six I used to write stories about video games I played and things around me. My first stories were about my Super NES game Doom, one of our dogs on an Indiana Jones type adventure for treats and some Viking alien mushrooms.
What's the story behind your latest book?
My current work in progress is a fantasy medieval crime novelette focusing on a couple of constables investigating a missing persons complaint.
