about me

I grew up as a reluctant reader. Now I write action-adventures & mysteries, especially for tween boys, that girls and boys hate to put down. My books are written from a Chrtistian perspective.

LONG SHOT

Max Elliot Anderson

A boy, a horse, and an impossible dream to run in the Kentucky Derby.


The biggest dream in Jerry Allen’s life was to ride on the back of the fastest thoroughbred in all of Kentucky. Unfortunately, this was only a dream because, though he lived on a prestigious horse farm in Lexington, his father was only a trainer. Out of pity, the wealthy farm owner had given Jerry a horse of his own. Rascal was the sorriest looking swayback horse that people in this part of Kentucky had ever seen. To make matters worse, the farm owner had a daughter. Precious was ten and Jerry was eleven. Precious made a point, every day, to remind Jerry that she was rich and he had nothing that didn’t come from her father. One day something happened that would give Jerry the chance of a lifetime. Through a strange set of circumstances, he became the “owner” of a prized racehorse. Would Jerry finally get to realize his dream? Or, was Precious about to unravel his secret?

 

SHADOW

Max Elliot Anderson

For as long as he could remember, all Bobby Taylor ever wanted was a dog of his own…any dog. But, he had a problem


Bobby noticed a severely neglected dog, in the back yard of a run-down home that he passed on his way to school. So, he sort of adopted this pitiful animal as his own. He even gave him a name; Shadow. Unfortunately, because the dog had been so mistreated, he had an extremely vicious side. But, whenever he was in Bobby’s presence, anyone would have thought that this was the most gentle dog in town. Buck and his followers made it their mission to pick on Bobby with every opportunity. That’s because Bobby was one of the scrawniest kids in school. Then a rash of vandalism struck the town of Mason City. It began small, but became increasingly destructive. After each hit, the vandals left their mark; a symbol that was always spray-painted on a wall or sidewalk. Bobby was able to keep Shadow, as his own dog, under one condition. If the dog ever attacked anyone, the sheriff ordered that Bobby’s father, who managed Animal Control, would have to put the dog down. This story will remind readers how important it is to tell the truth, no matter what the consequences may be.
