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-late 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.

Outside of my day-to-day life, I try to support Leicester City, keep a lovely collection of firebellied toads and maintain an allotment. I’m not sure which is most trying at times.

At the moment, my works in progress span several different categories. The Spyglass And The Cherry Tree is now available to purchase via Amazon so that’d be a good point for you to jump in and will appeal to readers who enjoy fantasy battles involving Goblins, Orcs and a surly teenage girl. If you enjoy reading about rich mythology then all the better. There’s also a sprinkling of real world reflection regarding the current worldwide displacement of innocent people.

The Monstacademy series for younger readers will hopefully with you in early 2018 so keep checking back and “like” my Facebook page to stay abreast of the lastest news!
