Matthew S. Thomas wrote his first complete novel at age 12. It was hundreds of pages, written in longhand, and his mother was kind enough to type it for him as a Christmas present. While a slew of 10 publishers did reject it, Mr. Thomas remained undaunted and over the next 20 years wrote 6 more novels, 2 screenplays, numerous poems, several articles, varying blogs, technical writing, web content and detailed memoirs. He lives in Lake Forest, California with his labradors Duncana and Olivia.
