Matt Tomerlin was born in 1979 in sunny Southern California. What began as an overly ambitious screenplay eventually became a novel, The Devil’s Fire. Tomerlin released The Devil’s Fire as a Kindle eBook in 2011 after years of rejection (“No one reads pirate novels,” they said). The book swiftly acquired a loyal fanbase, and Tomerlin soon released two sequels, The Devil’s Tide and the Devil’s Horizon. In 2017, he released a long-awaited fourth pirate adventure, Scarlet Devil.
Tomerlin is currently working on his fifth novel.
