"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 (Egmont USA), 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 next book, SEABORNE: THE LOST PRINCE, comes out April 14, 2015. The complete Jack Blank trilogy, including THE ACCIDENTAL HERO, THE SECRET WAR, and THE END OF INFINITY is in stores now.

From my podcast:

I have a podcast where I give writing tips, talk about the book business, and interview other authors.
The show is back from hiatus and my first new episode is below.

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.
