"Nonstop swashbuckling action ... High-seas adventure with surprising twists." - Kirkus Reviews

Welcome to

A website— on the internet!

What’s this? An entire website dedicated to me? Looks like my ship has finally come in. Time to start referring to myself in the third person:

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 novel, SEABORNE: THE LOST PRINCE is first the book in a new, ongoing series. The complete Jack Blank trilogy, including THE ACCIDENTAL HERO, THE SECRET WAR, and THE END OF INFINITY is also in stores now.

Upcoming Events:

Facebook, Twitter, and such are great ways to connect with fans, but the best way - and, the most fun way - will always be face-to-face. Every year, I visit as many schools, book festivals, libraries, and bookstores as I can. Here is a list of the next few places I'll be going.
