Matthew Whyman - Author

Matt Whyman is a best-selling novelist, also known for his work as an advice columnist for numerous teenage magazines. He has written two novels for adults, Man or Mouse (2000) and Columbia Road (2001), as well as both fiction and non-fiction for teenagers, including Superhuman (2003), XY (2003), Boy Kills Man (2004), XY:100 (2004), The Wild (2005) and So Below (2005).

A graduate from the University of East Anglia's MA in Creative Writing (1992), Matt is often invited to teach the subject for writers of all ages. Recently, he has hosted workshops in Russia and Saudi Arabia.

In 1995, Matt became the first agony uncle for 19 magazine, and has subsequently written regular advice columns for B, Fox Kids, AOL UK and Bliss. He often appears on television and radio in this role. Over the years he has co-presented a series of ITV's regional cult Saturday morning show, Love Bites, a live weekly phone-in on LBC, and generally stuff that involves sitting uncomfortably on acid-coloured bean bags.

Matt has written many national health awareness campaigns, for clients including BBC Radio One, Brook Advisory, NSPCC and the Health Education Authority. He is a regular contributor to TheSite.org, and a relationship advisor for askTheSite.org.
