Hello! I’m Matthew Zorich, author of the historical fantasy book Bastards of Liberty, book one in the Conspiracy of Crows trilogy. My book imprint, Raccoon County Press, focuses on fantasy and horror.
I’ve been an avid reader since I picked up Dragons of the Autumn Twilight many years ago. I have a degree in journalism from the University of Akron. Besides writing, I hike, game (PS5), and support the local arts whenever possible. I enjoy both urban and natural exploring when hike. You can find my graffiti and mural finds and hiking moments on Instagram often.
I read various genres from literature, historical fiction, nonfiction, science fiction, and, of course, all forms of fantasy. I’m a streaky reader and pick whatever feels right for the moment/season. Some of my favorite books come from authors Neil Gaiman, Christopher Cameron, Hunter S. Thompson, Ken Follet, and Andrzej Sapkowski. I average about twenty books a year and like most my TBR list is bigger than it should be.
As a writer and reader, I hope to provide some insights from the books I’m currently reading throughout the months and some of my favorites from the past, so feel free to drop a comment and say hi!
