Author has written 38 stories for General, Romance, Fantasy, and Supernatural.

I love short stories and that's the majority of what I read - it probably says something about my attention span, but I'd rather not analyze it.

In case you can't tell - I do like happy endings. They make me smile :).

I love to read and write (obviously, huh?) - I'll read just about anything. If anyone has any recommendations, drop me a line.

Thanks!

Hearts of Glass and Fire reviews
Phone calls from the Harris County District Attorney are rarely a good thing. The probability that I'm going to like what Matt Anders has to say diminishes exponentially on Friday nights.

To the Grave reviews
Though there is a princess, this is not a fairytale. There are demons, physical and metaphorical. There are battles and passionate declarations. Tears. Blood. Faithful friends. Villains. Heroes.
