Author Publishes Sixth Kids Adventure

Author Max Elliot Anderson grew up hating to read. Now he writes adventures and mysteries for young readers 8 - 13.

Rockford, IL, September 06, 2011 --( Author Max Elliot Anderson has published his next children’s adventure, North Woods Poachers for readers 8 – 13. The book is his fourth title from Comfort Publishing in Concord, NC.

“This book is not part of a traditional series,” Anderson said. “Each book stands alone.” The other three titles are Barney and the Runaway, Newspaper Caper, and When the Lights Go Out. “I grew up hating to read,” Anderson continued, “so today I’m writing the kinds of books I would have enjoyed as a child.”

These books are joined by two titles in the Sam Cooper Adventure Series; Lost Island Smugglers and Captain Jack’s Treasure, from Port Yonder Press – SharksFinn.

North Woods Poachers ISBN 1936695057

It was that time again—the annual fishing trip. Every summer was the same. The two Washburn families packed up their identical over-sized pickup trucks and headed for Canada. Only this year Andy Washburn determined it was going to be different. He didn't quite know what, or how he was going to work it out, but he was not going to spend two weeks in a boat, fishing again this year. There had to be something better they could do up there instead. Even if they had to include Sarah, Andy's nine-year-old sister, and Jessica, CJ's sister, they'd do it.

After arriving at the lake, the boys made a deal with their dads. They'd fish for the first couple of days and then the boys could go off and explore the area. This becomes even more exciting when two, identical, black float-planes landed on the lake, after dark, and disappeared into the cove around the bend from the Washburn's cabins. Then they took off again before sunrise the next morning.

The boys decided to find out what that was all about. Andy was sure these planes were poachers landing and taking off in the dark. When the four children set out on their mission, they uncover the answer to the mysterious, black planes. But they also stir up some serious trouble when they discover that there is an international ring of wild animal poachers operating out of the old abandoned lodge.

Author Jerry B. Jenkins reports, "Max Elliot Anderson brings a lifetime of dramatic film and video production to the pages of his action adventures and mysteries."

And author Bill Myers adds, "Sam Cooper Adventures are like good, family movies . . . as an ordinary kid finds himself in exciting and extra-ordinary adventures!"

“All of my books are available to bookstores through Ingram, and online at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and others,” Mr. Anderson said.

Young readers report that reading one of Max Elliot Anderson’s action-adventures or mysteries is like being in an exciting or scary movie. His Books for Boys blog at often ranks in the top ten in Google searches. A short video about North Woods Poachers can be seen on Youtube at
