About the Author
Matt Darst was born in Louisville, Kentucky, and now lives in Chicago, Illinois.
Matt got hooked on books early. He read recreationally at first. But shortly after discovering a dog-eared copy of "Salem's Lot," he began hitting the hard stuff.
By twelve, Matt’s addiction to the written word took a turn for the worse. He started writing…for fun. His experimentation with notebooks (a classic gateway) led to dabbling with typewriters.
Matt went cold turkey in law school. He decided to straighten out his life. He got a job, a house, and a dog. His normal life was good. Still…
Pen and pad call to Matt late at night, cooing his name, telling him to take one last hit of fiction. Sometimes, when Matt’s weak, he heeds the siren call of the drug. He wakes from each blackout amid reams of freshly written pages, pages that have seemingly written themselves. Somehow, they coalesced into a book.
Dead Things is Matt’s first novel.
