They say to “write what you know”, so as Matthew Long spends a lot of time accidentally falling into new worlds and riding walruses, trying to find a way home, he writes about things like that. When Matthew is not on make-believe adventures, he goes on real ones: travelling the world; working with children; fixing up an old Victorian terrace in Cambridgeshire; and relaxing in his cottage garden. Matthew has a degree in Film, obtained in Cornwall, England.
