Rockford Author in Chicken Soup’s Lemons to Lemonade

Children’s author, Max Elliot Anderson, is a contributor in another Chicken Soup for the Soul book, “From Lemons to Lemonade.”

“This new book contains one of my stories,” Anderson said. “It was a nice writing project because it gave me the opportunity to tell how, after a lifetime of film and video productions, I came to write middle grade adventures & mysteries for kids. The title of the story is, ‘Who Would Have Thought?’ After one door closed, another opened, and it’s important to be prepared to walk through that door, no matter how unlikely the opportunity might seem at the time.”

“Chicken Soup for the Soul: From Lemons to Lemonade” will inspire, encourage, and motivate the reader to turn any sour situation into a better one with its 101 personal stories from others who turned a negative into something positive.

When life hands you lemons… make lemonade! This collection is full of inspiring true stories from others who did just that, and will help readers make the best of any bad situation. Readers will find inspiration, encouragement, and guidance on turning what seemed like a negative into something positive in these 101 sweet stories of success!

The book is divided into the following sections: From Victim to Victory, From Rat Race to Relationships, From Pausing to Pursuing, From Adversary to Acceptance, From Problem to Purpose, From Sickness to Success, From Heartbreak to Healing, From Bleak to Blessing, From Apprehension to Appreciation, and From Fear to Faith.

“This is my 4th Chicken Soup for the Soul volume,” Anderson said.
