VJ Books Presents Author Matt Hilton!

Author Matt HiltonMatt Hilton was born in Scotland, but followed his family south to England and grew up in Carlisle, Cumbria and has stayed in the county since (apart from a two year sojourn back to his ancestral land during his late teens). Growing up he listened to tales of horror and adventure told to him by his father, a natural story-teller, and it was only natural that his over-active imagination be funneled into books, both reading and writing them.

Matt worked in various jobs before going into the private security industry for 18 years, followed by four years as a cop. He quit his career as a police officer with Cumbria Constabulary to pursue his love of writing tight, cinematic American-style thrillers, and to date has his Joe Hunter series of books on the shelves with more to come

Known as a British thriller writer, you might be surprised to find that Matt's influences incline more towards the horror and fantasy writers of the 1930s, the 'men's action' writers of the 1970s, and American thriller authors including Robert Crais, Jeffrey Deaver, Jack Kerley, David Morrell and Dean Koontz. His favourite writer is John Connolly.

Matt also writes horror and humorous crime short stories under the pen name of Vallon Jackson, the worst kept secret on the internet - as well as co-editing fiction webzine Thrillers, Killers 'n' Chillers.

Hilton's debut novel, Dead Men's Dust, was named as one of the "Thrillers of the Year 2009" by the Daily Telegraph. DMD was also shortlisted for the ITW Debut Thriller Award 2009. Since 2008, his Joe Hunter series has been translated in Germany, Italy, Romania and Bulgaria.

Matt is a high ranking Martial Artist and currently holds the rank of 4TH DAN in the exacting combat art of Kempo JuJitsu.
