Thank You For Visiting my site

At this moment I would like to open the door a little further and invite you to look at some of my stories. They are mainly about the trials of those who are considered a little different. The ones that are usually outcast or misplaced as a result of being overlooked or misunderstood.

My writings focus on the fact that such individuals are indeed contributions to society. Their moment arrives when they are called upon and prevail with their character. In the end they get their just reward; respect followed by acceptance. 

When it’s all said and done, I want my reader motivated with a warm feeling inside. I will write stories for the rest of my life with the hope that I can create happiness, bring encouragement and ultimately inspire. 

Thank you and enjoy!
Matt Shea

Readers Reviews

The King of Coalman's Hill

Another wonderful story from Matt. Brought back memories of winters of my youth sledding in the Northeast and the closeness of family and friends that used to exist. Feel good with some real life pain and sorrow.

Matt Shea writes with all of us in mind. This book discusses gossip and it’s dangers in a small town, discrimination of many kinds, that counseling can help even the most manly of men. I found many characters that I grew to like. Finally, faith in God solved the towns problems. Read to find out how a butterfly illustrates how God sends us signs of his love.
