Shamus Award-nominated author reviews Devil's Moon
May 16, 2012
Shamus Award-nominated author James C. Mitchell gave Devil's Moon a big thumbs up. Very exciting!
"Matt Marine has written a terrific thriller. A sexual psychopath draws a troubled FBI agent into a series of murders. The search for truth brings the agent horrifyingly close to his own worst nightmare… and it will keep readers on edge right up to the finish. Memorable characters and skillful plotting in some of Arizona's most intriguing settings."
- James C. Mitchell, Shamus Award-nominated author of the forthcoming OUR LADY OF THE NORTH

Matt donating 10% of Profit to Help People Suffering From MCS
April 29, 2012
Matt was diagnosed with Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS) in 2010. This disabling limbic system disorder results in severe reactions to not only chemicals, but every day household products like perfumes, fabric softeners, carpeting and paint. For a while Matt could not live inside his house and was living in a tent trailer in his front yard.
Traditional western medicine has no cure for MCS, and for the thousands who are afflicted by this disorder, the outlook is gloomy. Fortunately, Matt found an article published in the New York Times regarding a revolutionary new treatment system: The Dynamic Neural Retraining System (DNRS). DNRS was founded by Annie Hopper, a long time MCS suffer who cured herself by rewiring her brain’s limbic system and is now providing help to others with MCS. Matt attended a DNRS workshop in November, 2011 and is now about 50% recovered with a goal of 100% recovered this year.
As a way of paying it forward, Matt is donating 10% of the profit from the sales of Devil’s Moon to help others suffering from MCS who could not otherwise afford treatment.
If any of you know people who are suffering from MCS, chronic fatigue, electrical sensitivities or fibromyalgia, this treatment can be life changing.
More information on MCS and DNRS can be found at: http://www.dnrsystem.com/.
