Michael Allen Pearson

I am a writer and entrepreneur. My business background includes selling everything from newspapers to construction projects to mortgages and more. I have founded or co-founded three different start ups. Two of those businesses were mortgage and real estate related. The other was an innovative baby product. I began writing on a dare from my wife. I enjoy writing both fiction and non fiction, and have had a few short stories published by online literary magazines and blogs. I have also self published two ebooks (Home In 10 Steps & Murder In the Highest) – so far.

A very good story with a great title. A few typos, but that could be fixed with another proof read. I especially liked the ending, just right. If you have the time please read my story 'Drift Away' and leave a review to let me know if you liked it.

I appreciated the timeline of events and I liked the detail in the courthouse. The grammatical errors took away from the story, as did the ending, which was abrupt. The title was perfect!
