Matt Dovey is very tall, very English, and most likely drinking a cup of tea right now. His surname rhymes with "Dopey", but any other similarities to the dwarf are purely coincidental.

He has fiction out and forthcoming all over the place; you can keep up with it at mattdovey.com, or follow along on Facebook and Twitter both as @mattdoveywriter.
