He is a high ranking martial artist and has been a police officer and private security specialist, all of which lend an authenticity to the action scenes in his books.

Matt has been writing since childhood, and enjoys reading crime, thriller, horror and adventure books. He is a decent artist as well, and once had the honour of having one of his oil paintings shoplifted. Matt also enjoys a mix of musical tastes, but all of them old. Frank Sinatra, Bobby Darin, and Dean Martin can be found in his CD player as often as Elvis Presley, Eddie Cochran and Little Richard. Don't let him near a microphone at a karaoke night!

Matt is currently published in UK territories by Hodder and Stoughton, and in the USA by William Morrow and Co. Matt's books are also translated into German, Italian, Romanian and Bulgarian and has also a number of novels under the Sempre Vigile Press banner, and numerous short stories in collections and anthologies.
