My Story

I'm a small-town boy from Southeast Idaho. I've wanted to share my stories and wild imagination with the world for a long time and finally decided that now is better than never. I have loved reading fantasy books ever since I was little but there was always something missing, something that I wished that I could add to the story, to make it mine. Writing a book and putting yourself out there for the world to see is daunting to say the least, but the joy and sense of accomplishment you get from seeing your story out there, for all to read and enjoy, is a feeling like none other. 

I hope that you will enjoy the worlds of my mind and take part in the adventures that have been hidden from the world but are now finally being revealed.

Want to try listening?

I had an idea a little bit ago to try something new... So, I made a YouTube channel! I am starting with reading book 1 and using AI to generate some fun images to help give the story a fun visual twist. Come check me out at

I am a fan of fantasy books and this one didn't disappoint. Matt Taylor wrote a book full of adventure and friendship. It will appeal to any who enjoys Eragon, Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings. The book is appropriate for any age and I would recommend it to everyone.
