I’m Matt Velez, a writer currently living in the suburbs of Philadelphia. A native of New Jersey, I’ve bounced around both states a number of times in my life, finding myself somewhere along the way. A few years ago, I figured out writing was a heck of a lot more fun than everyone let on, and I’ve been doing it ever since.

I tend to write most about science fiction and fantasy, but I try not to stick to any particular subgenre. Whatever I write is what it is. I’m currently working on a few different novel ideas, and any number of smaller, shorter stories, at varying degrees of completion. Check out my Current Projects page to see what I’m working on now, whenever ‘now’ might be.

Writing is my main passion in life, but it’s hardly all I do. I work a day job in data manipulation for a nationwide company, and am looking into forging a career in web development to help fund my writing hobby/obsession. When I’m not doing that, I’m an avid reader and gamer, whether by video or tabletop. Expect opinions on them.

I’ll be using this blog for putting forward some of my ideas on storywriting and worldbuilding, or just whatever I feel like writing about at the time. For shorter snippets of nonsense, check out my Twitter.
