Indie publishing your first book is always exciting, but in this case it is quite special, as Matthew is a young adult with autism. He wrote this book with the help of his tutor, Nancy Barth.

The Magic Quest tells the tale of a young man who must stop the Evil Wizard from getting his hands on a certain spell book and thus destroying the world. Magic spells, people-turned-animals-turned-people, detestable bad guys, humor, suspense; this book has it all and more. It is not only a gripping story, but a window into the mind of someone with autism.

Ten Percent of the proceeds from the sale of this book are to be donated to the Easter Seals Central California Autism Intervention Program.
