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.
