About Matt Pelicano
Matt has received nationwide media attention for his writing. Some of this press coverage can be seen on the Media page of this website. Matt's latest novel targets a middle school-aged (and older!) audience. The result of almost two years-worth of onsite research and set in Paris, France, A Butterfly in Paris is an adventure story, a travel guide, and a French language primer all rolled into one!
From his youth, Matt has always loved the poetry of E.E. Cummings, Shel Silverstein, TS Eliot, Walt Whitman, Robert Frost, and William Shakespeare. His literary heroes include JRR Tolkien, CS Lewis, Oscar Wilde, Agatha Christie and David McCullough.
Matt has three grown children — Andy, Joey and Megan — and splits his time between South Carolina and France. Join the Mailing List!
