Hello, all!

My name is Matthew. I am 16 and from North Carolina. I am in the eleventh grade, and I have been writing for fun for about two years. As my name suggests, I am an avid fan of Classical and Renaissance history, so bear with me if I make many allusions to it.

I mostly write suspenseful, young-adult fiction in the horror and mystery genres. I dislike how diluted the young adult literature is these days, so nothing resembling Twilight will be present on my account.

For now, I will mostly be publishing short stories that will, hopefully, develop into novels.

Please, if you enjoy my work, follow me, and if you have a comment, leave an honest review.

Later, all,

-Matthew (AKA The Doge)


I am currently working on a new story, and I have four chapters completed, but I don't know what to call it. As soon as I can decide on a name, I'll publish it.


Sorry for the hiatus. School has been very busy. I scrapped that other idea, but now that my course load has been decreasing, I can dedicate myself more to my writing. I just published the first chapter of The Victory of the Finch's Crest (working title), and I think it is much better than any of my other works.

The Victory of the Finch's Crest reviews
A story of a young man trapped in a society enveloped in social animosity as well as the constant threat of deliberate attack. Set before electricity and widespread steam power, but after metallurgy. Also, this is the first story that I feel really serious about, so please review it and give me feedback! Rated T.
