Official Author Portfolio for Matthew Romeo

As a long-winded and eccentric storyteller, I should make an okay author.



Matthew Romeo was born in Newport News, Virginia before moving and spending most of his life in Yorktown. He attended Randolph-Macon College and in 2014, he graduated with a B/A in Communications. Throughout his school career he participated in forensics, creative writing, public speaking, broadcasting, and theater.

Post-college, he ran a small-time podcast with a few friends where they discussed current movies, fantasy topics, and fan theories. He has been an avid player of Dungeons&Dragons for the last four years, a current Dungeon Master, and runs both published and homebrew campaigns.

In 2015, he began writing his first book, "The Maven Knight" and finally self-published in October 2018. After 14 months of work, he published the sequel on Amazon as well, "The Maven Knight: Ones of Aster". The third and final chapter, "The Maven Knight: Heir of Providence", is slated for release in early 2021. Other upcoming projects include another science fiction series called "The Outrider Saga" and a fantasy series called "The Seawyrth Chronicles."





My Published Works



October, 2018

Tálir, a scavenger with a mystical heritage. Sarina, a brewer with a hidden past. Two individuals with a shared bond: they must save the world.

A thousand years ago, the Old World was destroyed by the Ending. The legendary Maven Knights of order were turned into legends. Now, an ancient malevolence seeks to bring chaos and violence to the New World's three nations. Governments within these nations squabble as the poor suffer, bands of Outlanders raid supply convoys, and Nanite storms roam leaving nothing but blackened corpses in their wake. The only salvation for the New World is the legendary fortress of Providence: a place of untold power.

Drawn into the chaotic world, the pair must unite with a band of survivors in an effort to stop the growing threats. With weapons, skills, and an old mentor to guide them, the group sets off on a quest to unearth Providence. Along the way, they will discover more about themselves, the Mavens, and the nefarious Order pursuing them. But most of all, the mythic powers of the Maven Knights must be rediscovered.

Two heroes. One journey.
