How old were you when you knew you wanted to be a writer?

Early, like ten or eleven. 


Who are your favorite authors? (Please limit your answer to five or ten.)

Melville, Borges, Flaubert, Steinbeck.


What are your greatest sources of inspiration?

Mostly every day moments with my family and friends. Art and poetry and novels inspire me, but it’s real experiences that people have that really strike me. I like telling people’s stories.


What genre(s) do you write?

I fluctuate between pulp to literary, to somewhere in between. I also write a great deal of poetry.

Where can people find your work?  (to purchase or just to read)

Mostly on Amazon. I used to distribute my work for free, but I’ve kind of outgrown that, and also need to pay bills. 


If you could feature just one title, what would it be?

It would be my new book, “The Year I Slept”. It’s what I’m most confident in.


Do you have any pseudonyms?

No, not really, though some of my books are under Matt Snee, and others under Matthew Snee.  I changed to Matt a short time ago.


Do you have any other hobbies besides writing?

I write and produce music for fun.


Tell us something interesting about yourself.

I used to tour the country in a rock band.


Is there anything else you would like to share?

My new book, “The Year I Slept” comes out on February 20th, and can be found here.
