Welcome to my Nightmare

Hi. I’m Matthew Graybosch from Sayville, NY. I’m a self-taught software developer by trade, and I’m currently employed by Deloitte Consulting. I code for a living so I can afford to write badass science fantasy novels based on classic heavy metal by bands like Judas Priest, Queensrÿche, the Blue Öyster Cult, Iron Maiden, and Nightwish. These are my latest books:

Have you read these? If not, I suggest you fix that as soon as possible.

Walk in the Shadows (Scene 2)

Though Josefine Malmgren is willing to trust Morgan, or Drew Burton (as he insists on being called), getting past Polaris won't be easy.

Starbreaker: Chapter 10

Morgan has piqued the interest of one of the powers behind the Phoenix Society in Chapter 10 of Starbreaker: Isaac Magnin. That won't end well.

Evershine: Renewal

Evershine's 2012 album Renewal is a solid listen for metalheads who like power metal, Japanese metal, melodic metal, or AOR.

Starbreaker: Chapter 9

Morgan Stormrider was happy to forgive Alan Thistlewood in Chapter 9 of the original Starbreaker by Matthew Graybosch, but the feeling wasn't mutual.

Walk in the Shadows (Scene 1)

Before Morgan can get Dr. Josefine Malmgren out of Asgard and escort her to safety, he has to earn her trust. That might be the easy part.

Starbreaker: Chapter 8

Morgan's more willing to cooperate with the police than the media in Chapter 8 of the original Starbreaker by Matthew Graybosch.


What? That isn’t enough? You want to see everything? Here you go.

I’m also on Tumblr. Yes, I’m as shocked by this as you are. Please follow me so that I have a reason to keep posting.
