Marvin Battles has lived a rough life but now finds himself at the top of the corporate ladder. It’s Christmas, and he is not merry with the season, a real Scrooge to say the least.

About the Author

"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, Fort Huachuca, Arizona. Dad was career military and Mom stayed at home, the norm for the '50s. Dad, Mike's ultimate hero, died suddenly and without warning. Without its strong pillar and stabilizing force, the family spun wildly out of control like a severed sparking wire dancing on the ground. The mire of dysfunction and chaos that followed proved to make for great storytelling later in life. Mike was blessed to take a wide bite out of life. From motorcycle outlaw to the pastor of a church and missionary evangelist, he has seen a lot, traveled a lot and done many things. Some he wished he'd never done. Some he can't wait to do again, yet each and every scrap of life makes fantastic fabric from which to weave another grand tale. Mike has written dozens of short stories. No More Mister Nice Guy is his first Novel. "Flatline, which is on preorder until its release on September 1 2016, is a straight-up crime novel full of twist and grit. An aging modern day outlaw, Troy, bemoans a life which has grown bland, a veritable flat line when compared to the everyday violence, action and crime of his previous outlaw lifestyle. That regret is small against the inescapable memory of a young child who died mistakenly at his hand leaving him with no way to balance that debt. Starting from his couch in Sacramento, he is cast into a long series of serendipitous events, in which the heroes tend not to be the good guys. Within the unfolding story, chock full of crime and murder, he sees a small possibility of balancing his debt. Despite its share of guns, guts, and blood, it is a fairly clean read and flinch free fiction.

This book shows the down to earth reality of people and there selfishnes and their selflessness. It is creative yet truthful and makes you think of your self in the same respct as the main Character. We need to watch ourselves closely and instead of the bitterness coming out allow ourselves the openess of Gods kind of love.
