Matthew Howorth


I have loved reading since I was a little nipper and devour books of all shapes, sizes and content! The broad spectrum of styles is reflected in my own writing, as I enjoy dipping into a number of styles and genres...children's books, both novels and picture books; teenage/young adult and adult; plays and scripts.

So please have a look...there may be something that makes you stop and read for a few minutes...and if I can do that, if only momentarily, then it is all worthwhile.
