Matthew Hanlon

About the Author

Matthew Hanlon was born in Worcester, Massachusetts a little while back. In the intervening years, he has become a veritable Johnny Appleseed, if Johnny Appleseed had the benefit of air travel, forgot his apple seeds, and forewent the floppy hat. Matthew failed to plant apple seeds in New York City, London, California, and back in Massachusetts. Unless it turns out that, while eating an apple somewhat *too* vigorously, he swallowed a seed and one has been growing inside him all this time, providing fresh apples regularly to his internal organs, unbeknownst to himself. In which case the Johnny Appleseed comparison is even more apt than he realized. He has written short stories which have appeared in such diverse collections as "Fenway Fiction," "Further Fenway Fiction," and "Final Fenway Fiction."
