Max Brinkman


I am a writer who strives to entertain -- and entertainment is the essence of Trigger's World.

Accordingly, Trigger originated out of my frustration with reading too many novels with too many axes to grind.

As a reader and a writer, I enjoy action and have little tolerance for anything that destroys movement.

I often believe I should have been born during the heyday of pulp fiction, when writers were allowed to write fantastic stories without the need to change the world. Back then, writers spun tales brimming with adventure and readers ate them up like jelly beans. Nowadays, most agents and publishers search for heavy content over entertainment -- a poor choice given the decline in the number of people who read novels for enjoyment.

Oh, I suppose much cannot be said about Trigger and his adventures. But what can be said is that he's one mean mother who puts up with no guff and shoots straight from the hip or shoulder, and always gets the job done on schedule and well under budget.

Now, if you are a person with similar tastes in fiction, by all means join Trigger in his quest to rid the world of riff-raff. And one thing is for certain: If Trigger's world becomes bogged down with rhetoric, he's coming after me -- and as a hit man, his competence is more than legendary.

In final analysis, Trigger's World aims for fast-paced fun.

And what harm can there be in that?

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
Unlike many authors, writing came to me rather late. After serving in the US Army, I studied music at the University of Tulsa where I enrolled in a creative writing course as an elective. The professor was inspiring and the course work proved interesting and fun -- and I have been writing ever since.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Knowing that a published book, however successful, lives beyond my reach and my tenure. It's a way of touching the future like none other.
