About Matt

Writing and storytelling have always been Matt Deutschman’s calling, but it was his kids, now ages five and three, who inspired him to write books for children.

After earning a BS in Journalism from Northwestern University, he founded a business in the promotional marketing industry telling his clients’ stories through marketing campaigns. Reading books to his kids continues to be one of Matt’s favorite activities, and his fascination with captivating stories paired with irresistible illustrations led him to envision creating stories of his own to forge a deeper bond with his children.

Book Proceeds

A portion of proceeds from all of Matt’s books will be donated to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Chicagoland & Northwest Indiana.

When Matt’s son, Henry, was born in 2016, he spent the first eight days of his life in the neonatal intensive care unit at Lurie Children’s Hospital fighting for his life. While the incredible doctors, nurses and staff at Lurie helped Henry make a full and miraculous recovery, the Ronald McDonald House provided a comfortable place for Matt and his wife, Deanna, to stay on-site to get much-needed rest without needing to leave Henry’s side. 

Matt and Deanna were humbled and overwhelmed with gratitude to be beneficiaries of this charity and are strong supporters of the great work the organization does to support families while they go through the trials of medical treatment.
