"I know you've always felt like you were alone in the universe. You're not. You never were. It's just that the answer was never in the stars."


Black Knight is the first book in the Blue Skies Chronicles series. The second book will be released later in 2019.


After the sudden death of her father, Juno Price has to return to the one place she swore never to set foot in again, her old childhood home of Hobbs End, New Mexico. Here, Juno has to face the dark secret that tore her family apart when she was a child.


Rekindling old friendships, confronting old enemies and struggling with her relationship with her estranged stepmother, Juno comes to the realization that everyone was wrong about the truth behind the Roswell incident and the mysterious Black Knight satellite. And that her imaginary childhood friend wasn't as imaginary as she thought.


Clever, fast-paced, gripping and chock-full of heart and humor, Black Knight puts a new spin on the Roswell conspiracy theories and coming-of-age stories about growing up feeling like an alien.

About the author

They say if a monkey is hitting keys at random on a typewriter keyboard for an infinite amount of time, they will ultimately end up with the complete works of Shakespeare. If you put a kid of about 8 years in front of an old Commodore computer and let him type things into computers from that moment on for the next couple of decades, you end up with Matt's debut novel BLACK KNIGHT, a work of fiction that incorporates many autobiographical traits.


Born the youngest of three children, he was probably destined to be the odd one out. Originally a software developer by trade, he has finally given in to scratching that creative itch and is currently working on his second novel.


He lives in Hamburg, Germany.

The eighth book in the NYT bestselling Expanse series, Tiamat's Wrath finds the crew of the Rocinante fighting an underground war against a nearly invulnerable authoritarian empire, with James Holden a prisoner of the enemy. Now a Prime Original series.
Thirteen hundred gates have opened to solar systems around the galaxy. But as humanity builds its interstellar empire in the alien ruins, the mysteries and threats grow deeper.
In the dead systems where gates lead to stranger things than alien planets, Elvi Okoye begins a desperate search to discover the nature of a genocide that happened before the first human beings existed, and to find weapons to fight a war against forces at the edge of the imaginable. But the price of that knowledge may be higher than she can pay.
At the heart of the empire, Teresa Duarte prepares to take on the burden of her father's godlike ambition. The sociopathic scientist Paolo Cortázar and the Mephistophelian prisoner James Holden are only two of the dangers in a palace thick with intrigue, but Teresa has a mind of her own and secrets even her father the emperor doesn't guess.
And throughout the wide human empire, the scattered crew of the Rocinante fights a brave rear-guard action against Duarte's authoritarian regime. Memory of the old order falls away, and a future under Laconia's eternal rule -- and with it, a battle that humanity can only lose -- seems more and more certain. Because against the terrors that lie between worlds, courage and ambition will not be enough...
