MATTHEW EILIAS UNDERWOOD is a frustrated writer, failed novelist, and floundering freelancer with little else to say for himself.
He has learned some handy tricks, useful hacks; he has had moments (pauses, actually) where his pen has earned him a certain level of success. Yet, he but lacks insight and craft befitting the title “author.”
Born and educated in California, Mr. Underwood lives in the shadow of his parents: unaccomplished, unknown, and wholly underwhelming. He is, after all, an Underwood.
Yet, from time to time, he peers from under the blankets of his melancholy subsistence to remain vigilant against the occasional villains who wish to tear away what middle is left of the middle class.
