Matthew D Brumfield was born and raised in Akron, Ohio. He began dreaming the concept of Everstone at the age of 14, where he started crafting his first draft of the story. Dreaming it as a series, he spent his free time during middle and high school writing and noting both the current storyline and the history of the Ancient Lands.
He always had a love for fantasy, being greatly inspired by the greats such as J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis. During his college years, his career path shifted from Film to Business to his current route of pursuing a career in Youth Ministry. He plans to continue writing on the side, as it is a deep passion of his. The beginning story crafted here in A Rising Shadow is only the beginning of a hopefully larger series completing the Everstone saga. He continues to write the second part of the series, much of it having been done since the original draft when he was 14.
While hopeful for what the future holds for this series, he hopes readers of all ages can enjoy the stories he is able to write. He knows he has fallen in love with the art of storytelling, and hopes it will play a continued role in his future.
