About Matt Dovey
Matt Dovey is very tall and very English, and is most likely drinking a cup of tea right now. He has a scar on his arm where a trap caught him in his badger form. He now lives in a quiet market town in rural England with his wife & three children; despite being a writer, he still hasn't found the right words to properly express the delight and joy he finds in this wonderful arrangement.
His surname rhymes with "Dopey", but any other similarities to the dwarf are entirely coincidental.
He is the Golden Pen winner for Writers of the Future volume 32 and was shortlisted for the James White Award 2016. He has fiction forthcoming all over the place; you can keep up with it at mattdovey.com, or follow him at facebook.com/mattdoveywriter and twitter.com/mattdoveywriter
