Matthew Prindle was born in 1984, and quickly became enamored with Science Fiction and Fantasy. He grew up on a steady diet of Star Trek, The Lord of the Rings, and X-Men. He messed around a little too much in his youth, until finally, in his early thirties, he graduated from Southwestern University in Georgetown, Texas with a bachelor’s degree in Education. Bob the Wizard is the first novel he has written that doesn’t belong in a trunk. He is currently writing an Epic Fantasy called The Outer Darkness and the second installment of Bob. He lives in Austin, Texas with his wife, two children, and a mother who makes a pretty good editor. He still messes around a little too much, and his love for fiction has only grown.
