"I find that good fiction brims with more reality than many other things claiming to be the truth. A good story will strip bare our heart, reveal the things that only God can see and move our soul." -M. Matheson
It is my sincere wish (leaving me only two) that you, the reader of these stories, will be moved in some way, be it small or large, and at the very least simply enjoy having read a good tale.
~~~~ Scroll down to my books and stories if you wish to skip the short long story of my existence ~~~~
M.(Mike) Matheson was born on an Army base in the middle of nowhere, Arizona. Dad was career military, and Mom stayed at home, the norm for the '50s. Mike's ultimate hero, his father, died suddenly and without warning.
Without his stabilizing strength, the family became a severed sparking wire searching for ground. The ensuing dysfunction and chaos proved, in later years, to make for great storytelling.
Mike has been blessed to take a wide bite out of life. From motorcycle outlaw to the pastor of a church and missionary evangelist. He has traveled a lot, seen a lot, and done many things; some he wished he'd never done, and others he can't wait to do again. Yet, each and every scrap of life has made a fantastic fabric from which to weave many grand tales.
Mike has written dozens of short stories. Flatline is Mike's second novel No More Mister Nice Guy was his first.
