About Matthew Nordin
Matthew E Nordin is a writer, actor, comedian, wanderer, and speculative fiction enthusiast.
He discovered the power of storytelling after reading Where the Red Fern Grows by Wilson Rawls while attending one of the last one-room schoolhouses in central Nebraska. His passion for writing continued well into college, where he wrote hundreds of poems, and earned a double Bachelor of Science at Grace University.
Having over 20 years of experience in theatre and comedy, he has coached multiple workshops and even started a few organizations in the arts. He met his wife Lisa while performing improv at a renaissance festival, and their company Scenery Changes encompasses their many creative pursuits.
In 2014, the idea of becoming a published author helped gather his stories into print. His first release, XR-404, gained praise for a flash fiction work. Shortly after, his collected work of poetry, Musings of the Northern Poet, was published by Dot's Publishing House. Then a short story, Paint Me a Picture of Poison, won the 2017 Constellation adult professional short story contest.
Matthew's debut novel, The Pycroft Particle, became a rare gem for a Christian science fiction story. With the release of the YA fantasy Shadows of Eleanor series, his works are beginning to link together. Find out more on his website SceneryChanges.com.
