E82: From Small Town, to Harvard, to Entrepreneur at 19 Years Old

Have you ever wondered what it is like to go to one of the most prestigious colleges in the world? How about if you were accepted to such a college without really trying? Today, I have a special guest Mike Evans, a freshman at Harvard University. He has a great story to tell, and it gets even better; he just went on a leave of absence for at least the next six months to pursue his entrepreneurship dreams.

Michael Evans is the author of thrillers that feature flawed, captivating characters facing extraordinary odds to survive and fight for humanity’s future. His genre-bending stories will leave you turning the pages late into the night.

Although a frighteningly realistic yet unique end to the world is always at the core of what he creates, his stories also combine elements of romance, dystopias, speculative fiction, and the adrenaline-fueled thrillers his readers have come to expect from him. And above all else, his stories are ingrained with his mission to enlighten his readers about the darker aspects of our future in hopes that the power of story can be used to propel humanity into a lighter, better world.

He is currently a student at Harvard University. He enjoys exploring abandoned buildings, going for long runs to dream up new story ideas, and reading about future technologies, political systems, and survival techniques.

He resides in Charleston, South Carolina, with his fluffy golden doodle but is originally from Long Island, New York. To find out more about him or his work, you are welcome to visit here: mevansinked.com.
