Like every child, Matt Karlov was raised on stories of the impossible, from the good parts of Sesame Street, to The Hobbit, to Watership Down and beyond. As Matt grew older, he had the good fortune to retain his taste for the fantastic, which soon developed into a deep love of speculative fiction in its many guises. He has been struggling to make room on his shelves for new books ever since.
Matt has been writing his own stories for more than ten years. He likes subtle, intricate plots, characters who keep you guessing, and stories that ask the big questions without telling you how to answer them. The Unbound Man is his first novel.
Matt has been a software designer, a web developer, and a business analyst. He lives in the Blue Mountains near Sydney, Australia.
