I’m Matt and I’m an author of children’s books including The Inside Book.

I’m a writer and creator who enjoys filling empty spaces;
like painting or writing on a page, capturing a photo on film, or telling a story in a quiet room.

The Inside Book

I wrote The Inside Book to help us understand why we’re stuck inside while there’s a virus out there making people sick. I hope it’s useful and you’re welcome to share it with others. Please get in touch if you have feedback or would like to translate it!

If you like the book (or me) please consider paying for it to support me making more books like this one!

The OId Man and the Creature

This video was created to tell a story that was stuck in my head. It’s about how we are often scared of things we don’t understand. We should try to understand something before we decide if we do or don’t like it.
