According to the bio on Amazon: "Matthew Hattersley was born in Yorkshire, in the UK. Over the last twenty years he has toured Europe in a rock n roll band, trained as a professional actor and founded a theatre and media company. He's also had a lot of incredibly boring jobs to help sustain his more creative endeavours.
Now he writes action-packed thrillers and neo-noir fiction. He has also had his writing featured in The New York Observer & The Huffington Post.
His Acid Vanilla Series follows a wily, but flawed ex-assassin who - while on a bloody mission of vengeance - realises helping people might provide the salvation she seeks.
He is also the author of the stand-alone novels: Cookies and Double Bad Things.
He lives with his wife and daughter in Manchester, UK.
And he's not too comfortable writing about himself in third person."
