More About the Author

Matt Dickinson is the author of the new teenage/young adult series THE EVEREST FILES, a thrilling journey to the dark side of Everest. Other teen/ya series include MORTAL CHAOS--published by Oxford University Press. This fast moving series of thrillers is inspired by the science of Chaos Theory--otherwise known as the Butterfly Effect. According to Chaos Theory even the biggest and most disastrous events (a plane crash, a tornado, an avalanche) can be caused by tiny and sometimes barely noticeable changes that happen in the natural world.

That is how the beating of a butterfly's wings can unleash mayhem across the planet!

In the first book in the Mortal Chaos series parallel stories around the world are connected in an intricate web of cause and effect. An eighteen year old Japanese girl attempting to climb Everest, a six year old boy in Malawi guarding his family's crops from a pack of wild baboons and two teenage boys hunting in the woods in the UK; all become snared in a rolling drama which links them together in a battle for life and death.

This is fast moving fiction and not for the faint hearted.

Matt Dickinson's previous books have been set in the world of exploration and high altitude climbing--an environment he knows well from his years as a film maker for National Geographic Television, The BBC and Discovery Channel. Probably his best known book is 'The Death Zone' (published in the USA as 'The Other Side of Everest')--the true life story of his Everest North Face summit climb. He has also had two novels published, both of which have been translated into numerous foreign editions; the first was 'High Risk', the second 'Black Ice'.

Matt does frequent lectures for schools and clubs in the UK so if you want him to visit to talk about Everest or his other adventures in Antarctica or beyond then please contact him at dickinson_matt@hotmail.com
