I’m a professional writer. In my day job, I write press releases and pitch interesting stories to media on behalf of a large, public university in the South. I’ve been a reporter, editor, bartender, paralegal and almost everything in-between. I’ve always been in search of interesting stories to tell. To that end, I’m writing fiction for fun and profit. Well, mostly fun so far. My dream is to have a novel published by one of the Big Six (or is it five now?) publishers. This site is part of that process. I generally write crime/suspense fiction, but every once in a while, I’ll take a chance on something out of my comfort zone.
I also do book reviews for commercially published and indie fiction. Rarely will I review nonfiction, and then only if I feel I’m expert enough on the subject prior to reading the book. If you would like your work reviewed by me, you can e-mail me at bwmathews [at] gmail dot com.
I take on freelance projects as my schedule permits. Rates are $25 per hour for writing/research. If you have a larger project, I also offer a flat rate for specific jobs. Feel free to email me at the address above for details.
My wife and I are proud parents of two incredible boys. Noah joined us in April 2011, and Spenser got here in August of 2014. They’re the ones who are really in charge around here, and I think they know it.
