Matthew Lang was born in Melbourne, Australia, although his formative years were spent in Hong Kong after his father moved the family to the then British colony in 1994. Attending a British high school he found a love of the English language and an inability to write summaries to the standard expected of the GCSE English course. He was also active in the performing arts--mostly in musical theatre--and debating, including regional Model United Nations (MUN) meetings, where he raised the ire of some organisers by penning satirical song parodies about international politics. It was during one such regional MUN gathering in Malaysia that he discovered his love for writing, his host introducing him to the now defunct play by email (PBEM) freeform storytelling group Imperial Secrets.
Returning to his native Australia for university, he studied at the University of Melbourne while he continued to write and act in student and amateur performances. However, it was only after going through a number of jobs in arts marketing and corporate business reporting that he completed and submitted his first novel, The Secret of Talmor Manor, to ManLoveRomance (MLR) Press in 2010. In the same year, his short story Mr. Perfect, placed equal second in the Midsumma Sex Off Write Off competition, and was offered a publication opportunity in banQuet Press' banQuet 2011 anthology. Matthew is currently working with banQuet Press in marketing and event management.
Of writing m/m fiction Matthew has stated:
"[I started] because I'm gay and after reading through a lot of hetero-normative prose I resolved I wanted to put some stories out there for people like me who wanted to see heroes and story arcs they could relate to on a more personal level."1
