Books for Boys
My name is Max Elliot Anderson. In late 2001, something happened that would entirely change my career path. As a result, I began writing action-adventures and mysteries for readers 8 - 13, especially boys. The interesting thing about this is that I grew up hating to read.
You can go to my author web site and read more about how this all came about, at http://maxbooks.9k.com , but, for now, I simply wanted to introduce myself. As we move forward, I'll be adding information about the subject of boys and books. You may agree or disagree with some of my ideas, and I'll be happy to hear from you as we go along.
The important thing is that I believe there is a tremendous need for the kinds of books that will attract and hold the attention of young, boy readers. I'll share stories about how these books are already having an impact. And I'll suggest other resources that may be helpful, if you are looking for information about boys, books, and reading.
One more thing: my books are enjoyed by reluctant boy readers, avid readers, girls, and even adults.
So, let's get started.
