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 lives in a quiet market town in rural England with his wife and three children, and despite being a writer he still can't fully express the delight he finds in this wonderful arrangement. He has fiction out and forthcoming all over the place; you can keep up with it at, or follow along on Facebook and Twitter both as @mattdoveywriter.

Fantasy Love

Cabhan and his wolfhound Tom walk in search of the cottage over the next hill, where his lost love Aoife awaits--or so he was told. A fabulist tale that's gentle in tone and mostly a personal indulgence.

This experimental painting features black and white paints in thin rings. As it began to dry, I took this closeup.

The technique I use to create this kind of paint texture is called “fluid art,” and it relies on mixing a variety of mediums into acrylic paints to influence how they interact. I’ll use materials like glue, isopropyl alcohol, liquid silicone, and a butane torch.

My photo of the Orion Nebula was taken in my backyard in Petaluma, California. It is composed of 60 images at 60 seconds each. I stacked them all to reduce noise and bring out the amazing details you see in the nebula . I think it is one of my better images. I hope you enjoy it. I’m on IG @bryangoffphoto Stop by and say hi!
