Mark Matthews


After retiring from the United States Air Force I devoted my efforts toward a long held dream of writing. Long ago, after delving into the first pages of The Hobbit, I was hooked on fantasy worlds, characters and creatures.

Now it becomes time to share my worlds with you, the reader. I personally wish to thank each and every one who reads my works.

The beginning of my next series 'The Outerworld Key' is finally out. (available here at Smashwords or other favorite retailers.) I hope you enjoy it as well as 'The Wizard's Crystal'.

Feel free to contact me on Facebook or at and check out

It's always a pleasure to hear from readers, fellow writers, or anyone simply wishing to ask questions or leave comments.

Thank you again, one and all.

Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I was born in Pennsylvania, living there until I turned 18. Then, it was off to the United States Air Force for the next 21 years.

Though the area (PA.) did not directly influence my writing style or desire, I find that J.R.R. Tolkien did. I read the Hobbit for the first time when I was 8 years old. Since then many others have fueled the dream. David Eddings was another favorite.
When did you first start writing?
As a teenager I wrote short stories for pleasure. They were mainly a form of relaxation. It was during this time my own style began to slowly develop and come through.
