M.T. Smith is a freelance writer and performer with the second national tour of Broadway's The Book of Mormon dedicated to preserving the world’s most vital resource—Imagination! At the tender age five he first became aware of its depletion and immediately put himself on a strict but hefty diet of cartoons, video games, music and fantasy movies. After twenty-two years on this regiment, his levels of imagination had risen through the roof, leading him to study Musical Theatre at the University of Arizona, where he also received a B.A in Linguistics; then to the Actors Studio Drama School in New York City, where he received his MFA in Acting. Before completing Cry The Fables (2013), the first novel in the Cry The Fables Series, he self-published a children’s book entitled, Two Lovely Cadderpillars (2012), wrote the children’s theatre play, Borrow Me A Prince (2013) with Chandler Center of the Arts and the adult one-act play, A Bawdy Door (2011). At the heart of it Mr. Smith is a lover of language: fascinated with how even the simplest words can paint a thousand pictures—spur a thousand of interpretations in the minds of readers. The only challenge is thinking beyond the fourth wall to the fifth, sixth and seventh. He maintains a Facebook page, Twitter, Blog and several websites dedicated to bringing awareness of Imagination Depletion on the global stage and offering ways to prevent it.
