Matthew Kirby

Author Type: 
Children, Middle-Reader and Young Adult

I was born in Utah, but with a father in the Navy I’ve lived all over – Rhode Island, Maryland, California (twice), and Hawaii.  As an undergraduate at Utah State University, I majored in history.  I then went on to earn M.S and Ed.S degrees in school psychology.

I also write, something I’ve done since I was a kid.  In high school I discovered comic books, and I wrote and illustrated one of my own.  I produced a single issue and photocopied it at Kinkos.  I stopped writing for a while after that, until later in college.  Back then I wrote mostly science fiction and fantasy short stories, and a little bit of poetry.  I’ve continued to write short stories, but my passion is for middle grade and young adult novels.
