The following is my Amazon Author Bio, you can view the full profile here. Only the picture at left is different. I would be honored if you read it and offered your comments for improvement.
Outlaw, Missionary, and Author, M.(Mike) Matheson was born on an Army base, Fort Huachuca, Arizona. It was not the end of the world, but you can see it from there. Dad was a career military man and Mom stayed at home, the norm for the 1950s.
In 1966, when Mike was ten-years-old, his Dad died suddenly and without warning.
Lacking their real-life hero as a stabilizing force, the family of two bounced from chaos to dysfunction like a severed sparking wire trying to find its ground. The result: a putrefying swamp of true life stories from which Mike creates his many great tales.
Mr. Matheson has been blessed to take a wide bite out of life from motorcycle outlaw to pastor of an inner-city church and international missionary evangelist.
Mike’s editor, Beth Hercules, says it best, “He uses his wry humor and an uncanny skill set to draw the lighter side of life from the seething underbelly of an outlaw world. Even in the midst of murder and mayhem, his positive spirit shows through.”
Writing from his own experiences as an outlaw, missionary, and world traveler, M. Matheson taps a deep well to craft stories that swing from darkness to light and tragedy to humor.
In addition to two novels, Mike has written dozens of short stories. The latter he gives away for free on his website here.
No More Mister Nice Guy, his first novel, is an allegory of life better lived dead, Flatline is his latest book. The next book he is working on, Taking Jericho, uses his own astonishing story to encourage others to climb the mountain of bad odds stacked against them and leave a lasting mark on our crazy world.
