Matthew C. ("Matt") Lucas writes speculative fiction in his hometown of Tampa, Florida, where he lives with his wife and their two sons. What's "speculative fiction?" The kind that you speculate. His brand runs the gamut from dark, metaphysical epic to droll, historical fantasy. And some stuff in between.
He did his undergraduate work at Florida State University and then studied law at the University of Florida (he pulls for the Noles, but for diplomacy's sake he'll also root for the Gators as long as they're playing someone else). After a decade in private practice, he became a state court trial judge; since late 2014, he has served as an appellate judge on a district court of appeal.
In his spare time, he's an avid bowler and occasional bagpiper.
