Matthew Harrison had a good childhood filled with sports, friends, and a lot of cousins. However, life took a turn when his parents divorced. His mom remarried with promises of love and spirituality, but sadly, the stepfather did not live up to those promises. Instead, he taunted and eventually abused Matthew, leaving him with feelings of being unloved and unwanted. The abuse persisted until he physically surpassed the stepfather in height and strength. However, the false stories about Matthew’s nature and actions continued.
Matthew’s strong spiritual foundation, thanks to good leaders and friends, kept him out of trouble until he got married. Unfortunately, that marriage mutually did not meet the couple’s needs, leading to a divorce. Despite the challenges, the bright spot was the birth of his daughter, who remains a delight in his life.
Further problems arose from unsavory relationships at work and in personal life. Matthew found solace in a special girl, and they married, bringing two children into the world. Despite many good years, they drifted apart, and Matthew sought companionship elsewhere which led to false accusations of crimes.
The legal system crafted a narrative that painted Matthew as a “monster,” fueled by biased media coverage. Lying attorneys, unprepared for trial, and a prejudiced judicial system resulted in the loss of Matthew’s good name, job, home, and, most importantly, his immediate family. Thankfully, some extended family members stayed close and supported him.
Convicted and sent to prison, Matthew learned to survive and thrive with an improved relationship with God. He had to acknowledge his choices and seek forgiveness to navigate the challenges. Despite numerous lost appeals, prayers were answered, bringing peace and direction. In prison, he began helping others—writing letters, sharing resources, and offering support.
Matthew wrote a book called “The Path Less Chosen” to share the truth. With another family member’s help, he embarked on a publishing journey. Despite differing opinions within my family, their support has been crucial. Self-publishing became the path, resulting in an enhanced book experience, including an audible version. The complete package—e-book, paperback, hardback, and audible—offers a unique reading/listening experience.
Matthew and his family continue learning about publishing and marketing. Grateful for supportive readers, a new book, “Misconceptions Shattered,” is set to debut in the spring, sharing stories of battling injustice in the legal system. It not only tells Matthew’s story but also sheds light on others wrongly convicted and the years of neglect they have received from lawyers.
The second edition of “The Path Less Chosen” aims to connect with a broader audience. Titled “Wrongful Conviction and Miscarriage of Justice,” writing, for Matthew, became a way to make the prison experience less hurtful and more productive. The journey isn’t over, and he believes God has a plan for his “schooling” in this place at this time.
