Going Places and Taking You Along
Matthew Weigelt has been a writer since junior high. Stuck in summertime boredom when he was 13 years old, he booted up his family's dusty word processor and typed out a few words.
Matthew ended up going all over the world before school started. He met new people and realized he could do anything to them or make them do anything. Quite powerful.
This love of writing never left him. He became a freelance writer and journalist. He has worked in and around Washington, DC, for more than a decade.
In today's technological world, Matthew can literally go anywhere to write. He prefers writing at a busy fast food joint with all the unique customers.
A mysterious visitor, a secret parcel, and globe-trotting spies.
For the first time, I was going to see the bold, courageous, and mysterious Matt Barnes. He disappeared from civilization for years at a time. Where had he been? The Mendenhall Ice Caves in Alaska? Pharaoh's Treasury in Jordan's Petra? Wherever he had been, he suddenly reappeared. What would coax Matt Barnes to return to the civilized world?
Matt Barnes stepped into view. Under long overcoat, the superhero globetrotter was here. But Matt Barnes came and went in a single night. He disappeared again, leaving me a mysterious package. The wrapping had no name, address, or markings to show where it came from. And I quickly discovered I wasn't the only one who desperately wanted what was inside.
