Matthew Lysiak was a staff investigative reporter for the New York Daily News, where for ten years he covered national stories across the country, including the death of Trayvon Martin, the BP oil spill, the shooting of Rep. Gabby Giffords, and hundreds of other national stories. His exclusive coverage of Occupy Wall Street and the 2012 shooting in Sandy Hook, Connecticut brought him national attention. In 2013, he left the Daily News and published Newtown (Simon and Schuster) and Breakthrough (Harper Collins) and co-authored the six book Scholastic series Hilde Cracks the Case. He has appeared on TODAY, Chris Matthew Hardball, the Kelly File, New Day on CNN and dozens of other television and radio outlets to promote his work. The story of his family is the subject of an upcoming television series on Apple streaming starring Brooklynn Prince and Jim Sturgess. Matthew lives with his wife, four daughters, and two dogs in Patagonia, Arizona.
