Mumbles Author releases chilling tale where happily ever after is not all it seems…

After suffering several ill-fated relationships in the past, Kim has finally found a man she can trust — a man who is different to other guys. Ben is charming, funny, and successful, and Kim finds herself slowly falling in love with him.

However, things slowly start to change as mysterious deaths follow Ben wherever he goes. Is it just coincidence, or is Ben not quite the perfect boyfriend he seems to be, after all? You will find yourself locked into the pages and swept along by the plot of this action-packed thriller. This chilling tale will haunt you long after you turn the final page…

Matthew Gilbert was born in Southampton but grew up in Swansea, South Wales. Matthew was an avid reader from an early age; Enid Blyton, Richmal Crompton and Malorie Blackman were his favourite authors as a child. Growing up, Matthew’s influences were Stephen King and Dean Koontz. He also enjoys reading John Saul and James Patterson.

Matthew liked creative writing in school and enjoyed writing stories. After university (where he earned an undergraduate degree in French and Italian and a postgraduate degree in Early Childhood Studies), Matthew went travelling. Whilst in Australia, Matthew came up with the idea for his first novel, Ben. However, this project took a back seat when Matthew returned to Wales and started writing children’s books. Over time, Matthew found that he really wanted to finish his thriller novel, so he decided to stop writing children’s books and concentrate on Ben. He found it refreshing to write for a different audience, and especially enjoyed developing the characters. 

Aside from writing, Matthew enjoys playing football, travelling and running. He is still an avid reader. In 2013, Matthew married Laura, whom he had first met when he was nine years old. They had their first child, Ellie, in 2015 and live in West Cross.
