About Michael Matson

Michael wrote his first book at age 12. A 24-page masterpiece hand typed onto letter paper folded in half with a construction paper cover—hand illustrated, of course—the tome was nonetheless a bestseller in the family. Since then, he’s been an airman; a commercial fisherman, the third generation to go to sea in his family;  a lobbyist; truck driver; counselor and minister; and general contractor. All the while, writing has remained an important creative outlet and a cornerstone of his marriage to his equally gifted wife.
