Matt Lake is an author and publisher most well known for his work on the ‘Weird’ series of books. He has either authored or co-authored six titles in the series, including ‘Weird Pennsylvania’, ‘Weird Maryland’ and ‘Weird England’, and has been involved with roughly twelve titles in total. He’s also written books about Krampus (the mythical creature that punishes kids at Christmas who have misbehaved) and other titles. Originally from Birmingham, England, Lake emigrated before smartphones existed and currently lives in the northeastern US. 

Always involved with a project, he has two books in the works - one about the Yule Lads (Icelandic mythological creatures loosely related to Santa Claus) and another about another serial killer Albert Probst (although HH Holmes is where his heart is ).  He’s also started a small publishing house to showcase independent authors, and has been known to appear onstage occasionally...
