Hello again! I’m sure some of you have wondered “where has Matt been and why hasn’t he blogged in a while?” Well, as most of you may recall, I left Corporate America in October of 2013 to pursue a career as a full-time author; and as those of you who were faithfully following the progress of the “From Fear to Faith: A Survivor’s Story” project are probably aware of, our initial intent was to release the book last November.
As is often the case with first-release projects, we ran into a number of setbacks that caused us to continue to have to push the launch date back. As such, we finally decided to stop pressuring ourselves, and to take our time to deal with all the unexpected things that arose. As a part of that process, I felt it necessary to disconnect for a while to focus. At any rate, today, I re-emerge; only this time, I would like to give you a proper introduction–the one I never submitted…
My name is Matt D. Talford. I am a writer, and author of the newly released, “From Fear to Faith: A Survivor’s Story.” FFTF is a story that takes the reader on a journey through one man’s personal struggle against a life-threatening condition. And though the subject matter of FFTF is of a serious nature, there is another side to *this* writer that I would like my readers to know about.
When I’m not working on a book, I enjoy breaking down sports, food/cooking, music, technology, and will also (from time to time) provide my opinion on current events.
Finally, I would like to again, thank each and everyone of you who has been in my corner, both during various stages of my physical struggle of nearly five years ago, as well as during the course of my writing FFTF. I am very excited about the months ahead, and am looking forward to the opportunity to speak with you more, as well as answering some of the questions or comments you may have. In the meantime, in the spirit of my introduction and speaking about what I love to write/talk about, please stay tuned to my forthcoming blog post regarding my thoughts on the May 2nd super fight between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao!
