A construct of tales untold, Corwyn Matthew is not a man, but a vessel hosting an abyssal entity that feeds on wonderment and imagination. This formless being inhabiting the skin of an average Joe channels creativity through the pecking of keys to bring structure to dreams. Desperate for a world where art conquers greed, the Construct thrives on bold concepts, hard work, and sugary snacks. Please refrain from feeding the Construct, however, for it is weak of will and easily swayed.

The stories that we create in life and the lessons we learn can only benefit others if they are told.
I'm an ardent practitioner of living. My experiences guide my writing, and my writing guides my experience. The craft of nonfiction should borrow liberally from the domain of fiction, for life is largely of our own invention. The craft of fiction is a documentation of potential realities, and our lives are the pursuit of those potentialities.
I write to learn!
