Matthew C. Woodruff

About Me

With sardonic wit and complete irreverence, Matthew Woodruff is one of America’s pre-eminent humor writers. The great skill with which he slices through cultural euphemisms and political correctness proves that Woodruff is a master of dark humor and satire and one of the most observant writers addressing the human condition today.

It is said that Matthew was born with a book in one hand and a pen in the other (his poor mother has never forgiven him but hey, at least it wasn't a typewriter...) Shortly after the release of his first book, Matthew was named 'Author of the Month' by Self Publishers Showcase for September, 2018.
A native New Yorker, Matthew is now on staff at the University of Florida in Gainesville, FL. Matthew is an award winning magazine features writer, editor and publisher.

Matthew's vision of the world around us - seen in his dark humor and dark fiction works - is unique and not to be missed. - 26 Absurdities of Tragic Proportions - was inspired by the illustrative works of Edward Gorey in the Gashlycrumb Tinies and is a great read for dark humor fans and fans of Tim Burton, Limony Snickets, etc.
Matthew's newest collection of dark fiction/dark humor/horror short stories - Tales from the Aether - was described by one professional book reviewer as "the best work in this genre I have ever read".
