Matthew's early life was quite dramatic. When he was a teenager he started to be a catalyst for poltergeist activity which was at times very persistent and dramatic. He then started 'automatic writing' and found that he was becoming a magnet for people from many different cultures and languages that had been dead for years. His first book, 'The Link' which told the story of this activity was published when he was 20 years old and went on to sell over 1 million copies. He then had an experience in the Himalayas which changed his life and he then started to work as a healer. He is now one of Britain's best known healers and still works from his healing centre in Suffolk. Other books he has written include 'One Foot In The Stars', 'In The Mind Of Millions; The Healing Journey' and 'Strangers.'
