Matt Wingett


Matt Wingett started writing in the 1990s as a scriptwriter for UK TV cop show The Bill, as well as writing national newspaper articles and stories. He is the publisher of a series of Portsmouth, UK, related books, and has written stage shows that have been performed around the UK. He has lived and worked in Egypt as an English teacher for the British Council, ran a successful rare book dealership for 10 years and has worked in publishing, copywriting and advertising.

He is currently working on a novel, The Snow Witch, due for publication this winter.
