Who is this?
I’m Matthew Alan Thyer, and I’d like to write stories for you.
I’m the author of a number of short stories and books, and I’ve been lucky enough to have had a handful of them included in Future Chronicles and other anthologies since I began writing in 2013. You can check some examples of these here and here.
Born and raised in Colorado High Country I’m trying to meld my Western experience with a diverse and unique vision of the future through character-driven tales. I hope you find these stories entertaining and punctuated with up-sight.
What is he trying to do?
I’m attempting to leverage my daily routine and make more time for writing. To develop as an author, I need to find readers with a passion for adventure. People who yearn for cultural novelty and the potential of wilderness. At the moment my projects look like this:
- rewrite and finish “Fire Weather” my novel-length spec-fiction story about wildland firefighting in the future
- complete the next serial in my Diné Sovereignty series
- write some spec-fiction short stories that combine elements of high technology and fantasy
How can you help?
In the past, your patronage has paid for some of my necessary living expenses and helped me focus all of my attention on writing fiction. Every dollar coming in here is a dollar that writing printed. Patreon has saved my time from being consumed by other projects or traditional employment. While I’ve never made what anyone could call a living through this service, it’s given me enough buoyancy I’ve not yet needed to seek other work.
What’s in it for you?
Stories, about once every other month, will be yours. Higher levels of support come with improved access to the author. Video chats with me, your name in the acknowledgments, and more.
