Matthew Corey was born, raised, and still resides in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Since early elementary school, he has dabbled in art, music, and writing. When his art didn’t evolve and his rock band failed to make it big, he focused on young adult novel writing.
Matthew earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Literature as well as a Master’s of Education from the University of Minnesota Twin Cities. Weekends and summers he spends writing novels about troubled teens. At all other times, Matthew is a high school English teacher. To continue to learn as a fiction writer, he attends workshops and classes at the Loft, the Celtic Connection, and the Continuing Education programs at both University of Minnesota Twin Cities and the University of Wisconsin Madison.
