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. He is the author of YA Thriller The League of American Traitors (Sky Pony Press, 2017) and MG fiction The Not-So-Boring Letters of Private Nobody (Dial/Penguin, 2018). His forthcoming MG novel, It’s the End of the World as I Know It (Dial/Penguin, 2019), features an 8th grade boy turning his backyard shed into a doomsday shelter in order to survive the apocalypse.
