Book Title: From Fear to Faith: A Survivor’s Story

Book Synopsis: A story of hope, love and determination

Author Bio: Matt D. Talford, a native of Long Island, NY, is a veteran of the US Army Medical Corps and retired Microsoft Technical Account Manager. From 1998-2002 he worked as senior editor for an Arts and Entertainment magazine which serviced the Greater Charlotte (NC) area. As a child, his passion for writing developed during evenings, weekends and summers spent reading accounts of historical battles and high-seas adventures at the Long Beach Public Library. He credits his knack for telling a great story to listening to fishing tales told by and about his dad and uncles during family gatherings. In his early years, his favorite literary genre was adventure, a fact that is subtly apparent in From Fear to Faith. Talford and his wife currently reside in South Carolina, where he attended high school and college, and actively participates in local and statewide tennis communities (both as a player and member of two volunteer boards).  Talford, who was labeled a foodie by a close friend, enjoys experimenting in the kitchen, and prefers his own home-cooked dinners to eating out. He is also a singer who has extensive experience in community chorus and musical theater. When not writing or editing other authors, Talford enjoys, fishing, cooking, reading, weightlifting, watching sports, practicing yoga, playing video games, and working as a part-time tennis instructor.
