Max China


It is said that everyone has a book inside them, and Max has wanted to write his since he was seventeen. It took a long time to get around to it, but now he's finding it hard to stop.

His debut novel, The Sister, hit the UK Kindle top 100 chart soon after release in late January 2014, peaking at no 81, something he'd never thought possible, except in his dreams. It's still selling.
The book led to a listing in the Top 50 Crime Writers to Watch in 2014 and also received a Gold Medal award from HarperCollins site Authonomy, earlier this year.

His second, The Life and Times of William Boule, is an action, adventure, crime thriller, and follows the lives of several characters introduced in The Sister. The story is complete in its own right - you don't have to have read the earlier book to enjoy it. Released late summer 2014, it's been well received, gaining some excellent reviews.

The third novel, The Night of The Mosquito, is an interesting blend of crime, mystery and psychological thriller. Set against an apocalyptic backdrop, it's a roller-coaster ride of a story!

Currently, Max is working on a fourth novel, an expansion of the short story, Don't Turn on The Light.

Other work in the pipeline, includes another three Miller stories, The Man in Brown, Finding Her, and The Resurrectionists.

He can't write quickly enough, but at the same time, he recognizes the need to develop great characters, produce good, solid story lines, and quality writing. He hopes those of you who've enjoyed his books so far will continue to do so.

Max is a member of the Alliance of Independent Authors.

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
Like most people, I’ve always written something from time to time over the years, and I first said I wanted to be a writer when I was seventeen, but life gets in the way.
I started creative writing seriously, about five years ago.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
I do indeed. I was around ten years of age and doing a paper round - whether that would be allowed these days or not, I don’t know - but there was a huge old house with a creaky wrought iron gate, and a long path that wound its way through overgrown laurel bushes. For some reason it used to terrify me so I wrote a little piece of fiction about it.
