Just a tent, right? With many summer weeks still ahead, this idea will help encourage more children to become readers, or to at least avoid the summer slide by reading adventures and mysteries http://booksandboys.blogspot.com/2014/06/just-ordinary-tent.html
Looks like nothing more than a simple tent in the back yard, right? Well, this is no ordinary tent. A few days ago, I did set it up in the back yard, but first let me tell you a little more about this tent. A few years a...

I write action-adventures & mysteries for middle grade readers 8 - 13, especially boys.
Introduction
Max Elliot Anderson grew up as a reluctant reader.  After surveying the market, he sensed the need for action-adventures and mysteries for readers 8 and up, especially boys.

Mr. Anderson was a producer of the nationally televised PBS special, Gospel at the Symphony that was nominated for an Emmy, and won a Grammy for the double album soundtrack. He won a best cinematographer award for the film, Pilgrim’s Progress, which was the first feature film in which Liam Neeson had a staring role. He has produced, directed, or shot over 500 national television commercials for True Value Hardware Stores. Mr. Anderson owns The Market Place, a client-based video production company for medical and industrial clients. His productions have taken him all over the world including India, New Guinea, Europe, Canada, and across the United States.

Using his extensive experience in the production of motion pictures, videos, and television commercials, Mr. Anderson brings the same visual excitement and heart-pounding action to his stories. Each book has completely different characters, setting, and plot.

Seven books are published, with an additional twenty-eight manuscripts completed. Young readers have reported that reading one of Mr. Anderson’s books is like being in an exciting or scary movie.
