Meet Cecil, Our New Senior Copywriter

Matlock would like to introduce our new team member, Cecil Cross. Cecil began working with us as a freelancer and consistently impressed our clients as well as other team members. Cecil has now officially joined us as Senior Copywriter. We asked Cecil a few questions about himself and here’s what he had to say:


Where are you from?

Seattle, Washington.

You are a best-selling author of two books. Tell us more about that. First Semester, a fiction novel released by Harlequin Books in 2007, is about James “JD” Dawson, a freshman at University of Atlanta who is on academic probation and struggling to balance his social life with keeping his grades up to par.  The sequel, Next Semester, was released in 2009, completes the story of JD’s tumultuous freshman year.

What is your favorite holiday? My favorite holiday is Thanksgiving because I love the food and spending time with family.

Do you have any pets?

Yes, I have a 2-year-old English Bulldog named Diesel. He is fat, wrinkly and loves to sleep all day.

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live and why?

Probably Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. I fell in love with the culture when I visited back in 2011. Since I grew up surrounded by water in Seattle, I’ve always wanted to live in a city where I could have a view of the ocean.

What is your favorite hobby? Writing. (that was an easy one)

Who is your favorite superhero/heroine? Jesus Christ. He was selfless, a man of his Word, able to resist temptation, and overall perfect.
