Matthew Frank lives in Kent with his wife and three young sons. Between family life and work as an architect he tries to squeeze in a bit of mountain biking, scuba diving and midnight writing. At least that’s what it says on Amazon. Matthew does go mountain-biking when he can, but hasn’t been diving recently because since his writing took off he spends more time making up lives than having one. Matthew is his real name – a pen name would just be too confusing otherwise.
