More About the Author

My life certainly didn't pan out the way I had expected. I fought for my life and nearly died from cancer at the age of 23. From that point forward, everything changed. However, change is like a glacier and it moves at it's own plodding pace.

My experience with cancer taught me a valuable lesson - don't allow life to just "happen" around you. Make changes, take risks and be true to your own heart.

After 11 years, I'm finally acting upon those lessons learned. I left a comfy career in my hometown to travel the world as an enterprise consultant. My wife and I lived in Vietnam for a month while we adopted our son. And I'm now listening to that ever-present voice telling me I'm an artist. Words and stories are my craft, and I hope you find some joy and surprises in my fiction. I'll leave you with perhaps my all-time favorite quote that personifies how I feel when I write:

"A bird doesn't sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song." -Maya Angelou, Poet

In all honesty, I wasn't sure I would like Eden. I glimpsed a few reviews before sitting down with the book to get a better feel for it, because I didn't really get a lot from the product description. Upon scanning a few Amazon reviews I quickly realized this was going to be a highly religious / religion based book and I just wasn't sure I was up for the read.

I must say though, from the moment I picked Eden up and was immersed in Alexandra Contreras's world I was enthralled and there was no going back. The book begins firmly in the midst of an apocalypse and follows Alexandra and others through their journey to Eden. Both heaven and hell have fallen to Earth making the journey there difficult.

The characters, the survivors, are astounding in their detail. They are so amazing, in fact, that you forget they are fictional. The characters, their interactions, discoveries, love, and endurance keep you in this book as much as the constant adventure of surviving an apocalypse. Be prepared to sit and read and read and read until you finish this book, because it literally demands your attention.

Eden is absolutely a fantasy novel, and while it is wrapped around and soaked in religion/ religious stories it was never preachy. Everything had its place within the story. This is a book that will make you think, question, and wonder. Those are the stories that stick with you over time, when other works of fiction are long forgotten. Eden will stay with me, just as The Celestine Prophecies did after reading it many years ago. Any work of fiction that can make you want to research more, know more, and believe more all while entertaining you deserves a place on your book shelf - be it the furniture variety or an electronic one.

And I don't say that lightly. I mean, I actually rejoined church after years of being away while reading this book, it had that big an effect on me. So yes, the religious overtone was big, but it is an enjoyable read nontheless. I fell in love through the sample, and this is a book me and my 12 year old son had chosen to read, one I was reading to him each night, and we both were hooked by the end of the sample we had to by it. For $5 it was more than worth it.

Alexandra embarks on a journey to see her mother and meets a mysterious stranger, Koneh, who comes to save her life more than once. Koneh is scarred and rough looking and sounding, and he isn't exactly nice, but in this new world, he's about the only person left to trust and she doesn't have much choice. He proves to her he's there to keep her alive and that seems enough, since everything else wants to kill her so far. Every THING? Thats right, I forgot to mention, theres possessed hounds and horned things and flying demons and fallen angels around every corner, making for one very scary new world for poor Alexandra. She doesn't want to be alone, and Koneh's all there is to trust, until they find the old priest, Father Callahan. He's much more likeable and easy to trust, and he quickly joins their journey to Eden.

Eden, the place where Adam and Eve were first cast out of for sin, has been reopened due to earthquakes and Heaven falling to Earth you see, causing all Hell to break loose, literally. So Alexandra's little makeshift group starts a very curious way across broken terrain to venture there, with many curious companion's and plot twists along the way. I don't want to give much more away to the reader, so I won't. I'll leave it at that and just say, this is a MUST read.

Matthew C. Plourde is a very talented writer who knows how to tell a story. He knows how to pace a story. Really knows how to keep you turning the pages. As unbelievable as this tale of "Eden" might be, you will want to believe it. You'll want the best for the characters. You will want to reach the end, but you won't want the book to end.

Mr. Plourde has a wonderful future writing books that people will love to read. And they will want more. I want more.

I read authors who write in such a way that keeps me interested, amuses me, and makes me consider what's being said between the lines. If this is a genre you enjoy, you need to read this book. Even if this is not your cup of tea, you need to hear what this author has to say. I highly recommend adding "Eden", and this author to your book shelf.

I have had this book on my Wish List for awhile because I was unsure about whether I wanted to read it or not after my sister recommended it. But I am SOOOOOO happy that I decided to purchase this finally. I have to say that this was one of the most captivating books I have read in a long time. I actually finished this book in less than 24 hours because I could not put it down....it was just that good.

It is a very quick read with not a lot of wasted fillers such as long, over drawn descriptions of places, things, history, etc. Those darn fillers are usually where I skim read, but this book did not have any!!

The author came up with the most interesting views/ideas about heaven and hell, angels and demons, God and Cain, the bible, religion, etc. Anyone who is a religious fanatic must read this book remembering that it is purely fiction. But the authors ideas are amazing and captivating. I loved the characters, especially Erzulie! And the author finished the book the way it should be. I was not asking for more when it ended, but was highly satisfied.

It is a perfect length for a book of this nature. I highly recommend this book to everyone regardless of what kinds of books they read. A must read for sure.
