Author Matson, Michael

 Michael Matson is a graduate of the University of Washington School of Journalism. A former ad agency copywriter, creative director,film and video writer and producer.

Michael is the the author of The Diamond Tree, Takeshi's Choice, Emily and the Elixir of Happiness, Bareback Rider, humor articles published in Cynic Magazine and various short stories, including "GATO," available in Short Story America's 2014 anthology of prize-winning short stories, and a whole bunch of other stuff that will never see the light of day. (Nor should it. Being a good writer, Michael's discovered, means knowing when something is good enough to publish and when it isn't. Burying the bad stuff is a kindness.)

I'm currently living and writing in Mexico.
The Diamond Tree, a great children's read and for those who read to children, is also available as an ebook at:
