About Me

I’m Matt Beighton, which hopefully you should know as you’ve already found your way here and the URL is a giveaway. That is my real name, I don’t write under a pseudonym. I’m somewhere in my very, very late twenties to early thirties. I am a teacher by day and father by night. Sometimes I get a little bit of free time and I choose to spend that writing stories.

At the moment, my works in progress span several different categories so it’s hard to pin down who would enjoy my books (when/if I ever bring any to publication); however, seeing as The Spyglass And The Cherry Tree is the most complete and most likely to see the light of day soon, I’d say that readers who enjoy fantasy battles involving non-humans will also enjoy that. If you enjoy reading about rich back stories of alternative cultures then all the better. There’s also a sprinkling of real world reflection regarding the current worldwide displacement of innocent people.
