Ebook Review – Dark Secrets – Matthew W Grant

The Devil always gets his due!, and this YA horror is full of satanic nastiness! I really enjoyed this book, it fulfilled all the criteria for a horror book! It has as said above satanic horrors, suspense and some thoroughly nasty people, and of course some stooges who you want to scream at!

Well written and extremely well edited Dark Secrets is one of a new breed of really good high quality books making their way through the mire of self-publised e-books.


Razberry Rating: 

Based in a small town in New England, the characters are all well defined, with good and evil playing their parts very well. The story isn’t predictable, although the end kind of is (am not giving away any spoilers!).

Dark Secrets will give you a shiver, and whilst I cant say I have had nightmares since reading this book, it most definitely falls within the jolly good horror genre.  


About the Author…….in his own words


"Matthew W. Grant is the author of several screenplays and novels in various genres including the Slaters Falls series and the Northbridge series.

Publishers Weekly declared Matthew's novel, Secrets Of Slaters Falls, "Tragicomic deliciousness!" noting that the "Bawdy, snappy humor catches spark right away." PW also noted the novel's balance between "Class-conscious dirty realism and the prurience of nighttime soap operas." 

Secrets Of Slaters Falls achieved semifinalist status in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award contest. Matthew's screenplay adaptation of his novel, Zach's Secret, was a finalist in a contest sponsored by Script Magazine.

Matthew graduated Magna Cum Laude with a degree in Education and Mass Communications earned after his thesis, Sex On Soap Operas, raised eyebrows and pulse rates on campus. His material has appeared on numerous websites and in two newspapers.

Like most writers, prior to writing full time, Matthew paid his dues in diverse corporate positions. He worked as a producer at an AM talk radio station where he interacted with local media celebrities and politicians. 

His career progressed to Corporate Training and Corporate Purchasing. He worked for many years at an international Boston based bank in which his media skills were utilized in many ways including creating training manuals, writing/producing/directing/performing in corporate videos, and writing corporate-wide communications. 

Later, as an Independent Purchasing Consultant, Matthew consulted for a company that was named to the Inc. 500 list of America’s Fastest Growing Private Companies twice during his time working with them.

As a resident of New England and a fan of its spectacular fall foliage, Matthew sets many of his works in small New England towns. While they may look picture-perfect on the surface, you can be sure they are teeming with secrets underneath."
