Max Hawthorne – Cryptids and Creativity
Known as the “Prince of Paleo-fiction,” Max Hawthorne will discuss his research as an amateur paleontologist studying the history of marine life and its predators. He will also share his fascinating real-life adventures in the ocean.
Max Hawthorne was born in Brooklyn and attended school in Philadelphia, where he graduated from the University of the Arts. He is the author of the award-winning Kronos Rising novel series, as well as Memoirs of a Gym Rat, an outrageous exposé of the health club industry. In addition to being a bestselling indie novelist, he is an amateur paleontologist, a Blog Talk Radio host, a voting member of the Author’s Guild, an IGFA world-record-holding angler, and an avid sportsman and conservationist. His hobbies include archery, fishing, boating, boxing, and the collection of fossils and antiquities. He lives in the Greater Northeast with his wife, daughter, and an enormous Siberian Forest Cat who, when he’s not stalking Max’s toes, sleeps on his desk as he writes.
