My name is Matt and I am a rancher and writer in Texas. I am a nineteenth generation Texan and the past twenty five generations of my family have been involved in agriculture. I have led a pretty outstanding life such as auditioning for a roll in "Dear John" and performing in front of William Morris Talent Agency in California. I have been asked to write a book alongside Temple Grandin, yet preferred to focus on my own writing at that point. I am a direct descendent of the minister to King Louis XIV as well as Charlemagne and Jean Lafitte.
