The youngest of six children, Matthew Zorn, who writes under the pen name M.P. ZORN, was born in New York in 1970. He attended high school on Long Island and continued his education at Northeastern University in Boston, where he studied sociology.
Starting in 1996, he began the transition from systems and operations specialist for different service-based companies to small business owner. In late 2011, he sold his company to pursue a full-time career in fictional writing, focusing on the economic and political thriller genre.
Matthew currently resides in New Mexico with his wife and is a freelance writer and author of Free Fall, the first installment in the Marcus King series. His latest project titled Zero Hour, is currently in final production and is scheduled to be released in the early summer of 2013. Matthew is also the co-owner of On the Spot Books, the company that publishes and markets his novels in their current digital and paperback format.
