Matt McCann featuredThe Mesa Book Festival is excited to welcome Matt McMann as a featured author at the 2023 Festival.

As a professional musician, MATT MCMANN played an NFL stadium, a cruise ship, and the International Twins Convention. Now he writes the kind of spooky mystery-adventure books he loved as a kid, including the MONSTERIOUS series. He’s hiked the Pacific Northwest, cruised Loch Ness, and chased a ghost on a mountain. While he missed Bigfoot and Nessie, he caught the ghost. He enjoys brainstorming new books with his wife, New York Times bestselling author Lisa McMann; viewing his son Kilian McMann’s artwork; and watching his daughter, actor Kennedy McMann, on television. Visit him online at, and follow him on X (Twitter) and Instagram @matt_mcmann.

Thank You To Our 2023 Sponsors!
