Max grew up just outside of New York City, spending most of her formative years outdoors creating wild ghost hunts with neighborhood kids, setting booby-traps to capture unwitting family members, and building clubhouses on top of ten-foot walls. Max wrote her first story at the age of twelve and titled it Circles of Friendship, which followed a young protagonist who helped save a friend from a toxic home environment. Through the years, Max has written several short-stories and poems, all of which met the wrath of the “Not Good Enough” monster and ended in fiery demise.
Max regained her confidence when she began writing scholarly articles and research theses on her first trip through graduate school. It took several years for her to break the habit of the formal writing that marred her creativity. An additional Master of Arts degree in Writing was Max’s biggest support in this endeavor. She now has a MFA in Creative Writing and is working on the Legacy Series from which her first book, Glyph, is derived. Max writes primarily sci-fi/fantasy, paranormal romance, and Young Adult novels.
