My name is Matthew J. Hall and I don’t have a degree nor own any cats. I am not studying creative writing and I am not the editor of any literary mags. I have worked in many factories and warehouses assembling, packing and picking everything from shoes to pornographic magazines. I am an avid reader and writer of poetry and short fiction. I aim to one day live a quiet life by a body of water with my wife, drinking whiskey, eating cheese and writing.
