About meMatt Fullerty's first novel The Pride and the Sorrow is about world champion chess player Paul Morphy and his tour of New Orleans, New York, Paris and London in the nineteenth century to become one of the greatest players of all time - aged only twenty-one.

Morphy conquered the world at chess but found his relationships with family, friends and women a little trickier than the sixty-four square madhouse...See for more details.

Matt is now writing a London murder novel called The Murderess and the Hangman about an Irish maid who murders her landlady for a few pieces of furniture...and then impersonates her on a murderous spree around London!

I just hope you like murder and mayhem, hangings, detective fiction, a grimy London of the nineteenth century, and a female killer. Hopefully this book brings them all to life. As Russ Abbott would say, "I love a party with an atmosphere."

Right, back to it!
