Matthew J Elliott

Matthew J Elliott is a British writer and performer who lives in the town that spawned Georgie Fame, author of Lost Horizon James Hilton, Colin “Chariots of Fire” Welland (his actual middle names, believe it or not), and, apparently, the guy who invented the Spinning Jenny during the Industrial Revolution, but never thought to patent it.

Matthew has scripted many episodes of US radio series including The Twilight Zone, Wrath of the Titans, Vincent Price Presents, The Further Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, The Perry Mason Radio Dramas, The Classic Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, The Father Brown Mysteries, Raffles the Gentleman Thief, Kincaid the Strangeseeker (this list goes on for a while - you may want to fix yourself a sandwich), The Adventures of Harry Nile, Fangoria's Dreadtime Stories, Allan Quatermain and the Lord of the Locusts, Masters of Mystery, The Prince of the Pauper, The Adventures of Robin Hood, The Hilary Caine Mysteries, Jeeves and Wooster and the Audie Award-nominated New Adventures of Mickey Spillane's Mike Hammer. Told you it would take a while. Hey, what's on your sandwich? Cool.

Matthew is the editor of several volumes for Wordsworth Publications in the UK, his articles and fiction have appeared in Scarlet Street, SHERLOCK Magazine, Sherlock Holmes Mystery Magazine and DVD Monthly, and other short stories can be found in the collections Mammoth Book of Best British Mysteries 8, Curious Incidents 2, Gaslight Grimoires and The Game's Afoot. He lives with his wife Gillian, daughter Megan, two cats and an inexplicably large mortgage.
