Matthew Quinn 

Matthew W. Quinn (b. 1984) grew up in Marietta, Georgia. After graduating from the University of Georgia with a dual degree in magazine journalism and history, he has reported for one newspaper, edited two more, reported for an online news service, a sports magazine, and a trade show, blogged for a cloud-computing firm and two film companies, and collected Twitter feeds for online ad campaigns. His work has brought him into contact with presidential candidates, television celebrities, and notable authors and once earned him a commendation from the Georgia Department of Veterans' Service. After earning his M.A. in World History, he now works as a high-school social studies teacher. Throughout all of this, he has written science fiction, fantasy, and horror. His first sale, the creature tale “I am the Wendigo” to the horror webzine CHIMAERA SERIALS, was during his last year at college. 2009 saw the sale of "Skirmish at the Vale's Edge" to BattleCorps, the official BattleTech tie-in site. He made his first professional sale, "Coil Gun," to Digital Fiction Publishing’s Kindle anthology PRESSURE SUITE: DIGITAL SCIENCE FICTION #3 in 2011. He also sold the Viking horror tale "Nicor" to HEROIC FANTASY QUARTERLY, which published it in early 2013. In 2015 and 2016, reprints of his independently-published short stories “Picking Up Plans in Palma,” “The Beast of the Bosporus,” “Illegal Alien,” and “Lord Giovanni’s Daughter” have appeared in Digital Fiction Publishing’s collections UNCOMMON SENSES, OPERATIVE SEQUENCE, and COSMIC HOOEY.
