Hello there. You may call me Matt. Though it isn't my real name, it's what I've always been called online, so it only seemed natural to keep it when I found myself in need of a pseudonym.

I am a student in the UK, splitting time between study, play and alcohol. I'm not sure where writing appears in that trio, but it does. I have been writing original fiction for far too long and yet am not smart enough to give it up. So I suppose I can't complain.

This is a secondary account to my account on fanfiction.net, under the same username. All my fanfiction appears there, though I will one day (I hope) get this account somewhat up to date.

Feel free to get in contact with me via any of these sites or my email address. I also use MSN, old school as it is. I'm happy to talk to anyone to skive off my actual work.
