About the author

Matthew Copes

The author’s perpetual restlessness and wanderlust have propelled him across the country and around the world. He’s lived in Maryland, Pennsylvania, Arizona and Cambodia. He’s been a truck driver, salesman, teacher and travel writer.

He’s moody, creative, introverted, and absolutely convinced that most conspiracy theories are true. He’s especially fond of his family and friends, cats and hot cappuccino. Though he’s been writing short stories for decades, it wasn’t until 2017 that he ever considered writing a full-length novel.

For the last four years he’s lived in Phnom Penh with his Cambodian wife and their young son. When not working, reading or writing he’s usually in a coffee shop with his family or cruising the countryside on his motorcycle.
