Hello there!

I’m Matthew Hanover. By day, I’m just an ordinary forty-something marketing professional just trying to earn a paycheck.

But, by night (and on weekends) I write novels. My novels are contemporary fiction / romantic comedies. I originally set out to just write one novel I had in my head and realized I had more stories to tell. So far, I’ve written three novels, and a fourth one is on the way!

“If you are a fan of Jonathan Tropper or Matthew Norman, you will become a fan of Matthew Hanover.”

—AMAZON REVIEW

“Matthew Hanover has earned the right to be considered alongside other genre greats such as Nick Hornby.”

—AMAZON REVIEW

Inspired by the writing of Nick Hornby and Jonathan Tropper, I started writing my first novel, Not Famous back in 2011.

It took seven years to complete the first draft and was finally published in January 2019. My second novel, Not Dressed, took me significantly less time to complete, and it was published in February 2020.

My third novel, Not Awkward, was published in August 2021, and I’m currently working on my next novel, which will hopefully come out in 2022.

The novels.

“Matthew Hanover delivers a pitch-perfect story in his debut novel.”
—IAN SHANE, AUTHOR OF IN TEN YEARS

“A sweet bit of lad lit that’ll fill your heart with song. Not Famous is almost as much a tribute to Nick Hornby as it is a story in the same vein as his work. There are nods to Jonathan Tropper and Matthew Norman, too.”
—THE IRRESPONSIBLE READER

Not Famous by Matthew Hanover is a delightful, charming, and humorous story that romance readers will thoroughly enjoy and be unable to put down. Matthew Hanover has created well-developed characters that will tug at the heartstrings.”
—CHICK LIT CAFE

“Matthew Hanover’s wit and humor shine in this endearing and entertaining follow up to Not Famous.”
—LAUREN H. MAE, AUTHOR OF THE CATCH

“A brilliant story of two people who are trying to find what they want in life.”
—AMAZON REVIEW

“This is a romantic comedy about being true to yourself and finding your passion.”
—GOODREADS REVIEW

“Matthew Hanover once again delivers the goods, showcasing the need we all have for closure while still moving forward with our lives. The humor is spread throughout, but it’s the characters that blend together on his canvas that makes Not Awkward a masterpiece.”
—WESLEY PARKER, AUTHOR OF HEADPHONES AND HEARTACHES

“Matthew Hanover’s latest is another fun tale populated with characters you want to root for, even when things get awkward.”
—JAMES BAILEY, AUTHOR OF SORRY I WASN’T WHAT YOU NEEDED

“An entertaining, wistful, and evocative romantic comedy.”
—GARY GOLDSTEIN, AUTHOR OF THE LAST BIRTHDAY PARTY
