About Matthew Gorrell

Hello everyone, my name is Matthew Gorrell and I am a student at UCCS and aspiring author. 


I have worked on many short stories and screenplays prior to my debut novel.


In the past, I have since tried to complete a novel, but never got around to finishing it because it trapped me in a prison of perfectionism.


However, I hope I can help all of you to complete your first novel. We all have our wounds and I feel writing, at least for me, is a therapeutic process that can benefit everyone.


So I hope in sharing my wounds, you will not only accept them, but relate to them and become immersed in my gripping, visual tales.
