Matt Coyle is the author of the best-selling Rick Cahill crime novels. He knew he wanted to be a crime writer when he was fourteen and his father gave him the simple art of murder by Raymond Chandler. His foray into crime fiction was delayed for thirty years as he spent time managing a restaurant, selling golf clubs for various golf companies, and in national sales for a sports licensing company.

Writing at night for over a decade his debut novel, Yesterday’s Echo, was finally published in 2013. The wait was almost worth it as it won the Anthony Award for Best First Novel, the San Diego Book Award for Best Mystery, the Ben Franklin Award for Best New Voice in Fiction.

Lost Tomorrows, Matt’s sixth Rick Cahill novel, was released December 2020.

Matt lives in San Diego with his yellow Lab, Angus, where he is writing his seventh crime novel.

Maddie Margarita writes humorous suspense and hosts Lit Up! OC --a monthly writer’s salon in Orange County, CA, and CHARACTER FLOSS, a podcast for readers and writers on Authors On The Air Global Network.

When not writing, talking into a mic, or marketing SANDBLASTED – a humorous thriller about grief, bad decisions and getting unstuck - Maddie serves on the Boards of Sisters-in-Crime OC, and the Southern California Writers Association. Her short stories can be found in IT’S ALL IN THE STORY - CALIFORNIA, an anthology of short fiction.
