Matthew Hattersley was born in Yorkshire, in the UK. Over the last twenty years he has toured Europe in a rock n roll band, trained as a professional actor and founded a theatre and media company.

He’s also had a lot of incredibly boring jobs to help sustain his creative endeavours.

Now he writes action thrillers and psychological thrillers as M. I. Hattersley .  His Bestselling Acid Vanilla Series follows a wily, but flawed ex-assassin who - while on a bloody mission of vengeance - realises helping people might provide the salvation she seeks. 

He is also the author of the Jareth Hicks Series and the stand-alone novels: Cookies and Double Bad Things.

He lives with his wife and daughter in Derbyshire, UK.

And he's not too comfortable writing about himself in third person.
