Matthew Ward

Cat-servant and owner of more musical instruments than he can actually play (and considerably more than he can play well), MATTHEW WARD is also the author of LEGACY OF ASH, architect of COLDHARBOUR, and Creative Consultant on VERMINTIDE 2. He’s afflicted with an obsession for old places – castles, historic cities and the London Underground chief amongst them – and should probably cultivate more interests to help expand out his author biography.

After a decade serving as a principal architect for Games Workshop’s Warhammer and Warhammer 40,000 properties, Matthew embarked on an adventure to tell stories set in worlds of his own design. He lives near Nottingham with his extremely patient wife – as well as a pride of attention-seeking cats – and writes to entertain anyone who feels there’s not enough magic in the world.
