Matt Pantoliano has been working in marketing in the Children's Division at Simon & Schuster for longer than he'd like to admit. He's a bibliophile with a penchant for YA and sci-fi/fantasy and when asked to choose between Star Wars and Star Trek, he chooses Stargate. When not marketing books or working on Riveted, he can likely be found playing Ruzzle on his iphone and he welcomes any and all challenges (Seriously, send him a game, his username is "mpants"). One day, he may finally pursue his dream of being a competitive whistler. Matt lives in Westchester with his wife and two kids.
