Matthew Landis teaches middle school history outside Philadelphia, where he seeks to make the past come alive in not-boring ways. He is a closet HALO fan, and can sometimes be found reading novels adapted from that video game. He is blessed with an amazing wife and two kids, and hopes to one day write a book that moves people like Lev Grossman, Jo Nesbo, or Ron Rash have moved him. His debut YA novel, The League of American Traitors, released this past August from Sky Pony Press, and his debut MG novel, The Not-So-Boring Letters of Private Nobody will release February 13th 2018 from Dial/Penguin.
