My name is Matt Verish, and I write speculative fiction. I have no honorary degree of which to boast, nor do I have any fancy awards to flaunt. Not yet, anyway. What I do possess is a burning passion to create and write in both the Science Fiction and Fantasy genres. I've been writing since I was in the fourth grade, though I didn't truly realize my desire to become an author until I was in college. And it wasn't until my late thrities that I actually completed my first full novel.
Why did I tackle my first solo project so close to forty, you ask? Well that's simple: I'm also a married co-author. When I'm not daydreaming about interstellar cargo vessels, I'm busy shaping the World of Secramore with my beautiful wife, Stefanie. Together we've been writing Epic Fantasy for close to twenty years. We have five full-length novels and two short stories to our names with many more to come. It's a wonder I have time to write anything on the side!
Icarus (Interstellar Cargo Book 1)
Cole Musgrave's dream of interstellar travel is about to become a nightmare.
When a high-profile delivery is compromised aboard a state-of-the-art cargo vessel, the newly appointed captain finds himself embroiled in an assignment far above his pay grade. Blackmail, terrorists, a malfunctioning prototype A.I. pilot, and a sinister terraforming corporation with deep criminal ties await him. Who knew delivering cargo to the deep recesses of space could be so dangerous? Armed only with his cunning and past military experience, Cole is one against many. But this unorthodox interstellar cargo pilot won't go down without a fight-even after he is faced with a choice that will alter the course of his life forever.
