Matt Bennett is an author, media consultant for the Magic Firm, a musician, songwriter, husband and father.
Matt began writing as an investigative journalist for a newspaper in Indiana, and as he worked out ways to learn how to tell stories, he also became interested in performing magic. This was a fortunate interest, because it led to conversations that subsequently became jobs, mostly technical and scripting, teaching people through the written word how to do magic tricks and how to perform them.
With thousands of people reading his words on magic and his newspaper articles that many times made the front page, Matt began a quest to learn to write in ways that not only taught, but influenced people’s thinking, mostly with emotional, logical, and philosophical appeals. As these skills increased, he was sought out by more and more people, and the work increased in frequency and project size. At that point Matt decided to take his expertise outside of the community of magicians, and write books for anyone who wanted their ideas, concepts, experiences, and philosophies organized into written form. He put together a team of consultants specializing in education, language, entertainment, visual and audio arts, and public relations and continues to tell people’s stories with the help of this think tank.
Matt Bennett’s fiction has been published in several short story anthologies. His non-fiction writing has been well-received by some of the worlds top performers and entertainers. Matt is a consultant with The Magic Firm based in Louisville, KY, where he works on scripting shows in the industry.
