A website— on the internet!

Matt Myklusch is a middle-grade fantasy/adventure author and the creator of SEABORNE (Lerner Books), and THE JACK BLANK ADVENTURES (Simon & Schuster, Aladdin). When he’s not busy writing about kite-boarding pirates, superheroes, and robot-zombies, Matt hosts THE OTHER SIDE OF THE STORY PODCAST, speaking with other authors about their creative process and path to publication.

Matt’s latest book, SEABORNE: THE LOST PRINCE, has just hit the shelves! The complete Jack Blank trilogy, including THE ACCIDENTAL HERO, THE SECRET WAR, and THE END OF INFINITY are also in stores now.

Upcoming Events:
