As an undergraduate at Utah State University, he majored in history. He then went on to earn MS and EdS degrees in School Psychology. Matthew currently lives with his wife in Utah, where he works for a large school district. The Clockwork Three is his first book. Visit Matthew's website at www.matthewkirby.com.
