About Me

Matthew Pizzolato is a member of Western Fictioneers. His short stories have been published online and in print in such publications as: BEAT to a PULP!, The Copperfield Review, PULP MODERN, Frontier Tales Magazine, The Pink Chameleon Online, Perpetual Magazine, Long Story Short, and The Storyteller. He writes a weekly NASCAR column for Insider Racing News and is a contributing writer for Suite101.com.

The Wanted Man is a collection of eight of his short stories that he recently self-published for the Amazon Kindle and as a Barnes and Noble NOOK BOOK.
He graduated from C.E. Byrd High school with a 3.92 cumulative GPA and attended college for two weeks but quit because, as Louis L'amour says in his memoir, Education of a Wandering Man, "school was interfering with his education."

After languishing at a job for several years, he decided to get serious about writing and applied for and was accepted into two courses offered by Long Ridge Writing Group, the first a short story writing course and the second a novel writing course. He completed and received diplomas for each course. Long Ridge helped him to polish his writing and taught him the mechanics of how to submit his work.

Matthew has always had a love for reading and accepted the fact that one day he would be a writer. He would have been an artist but since the only thing that he can draw is flies, he decided to paint his pictures with words instead.
