Max Overton has travelled extensively and lived in many places around the world--including Malaysia, India, Germany, England, Jamaica, New Zealand, USA and Australia. Trained in the biological sciences in New Zealand and Australia, he has worked within the scientific field for many years, but now concentrates on writing. While predominantly a writer of historical fiction (Scarab: Books 1 - 6 of the Amarnan Kings; the Scythian Trilogy; the Demon Series; Ascension), he also writes in other genres (A Cry of Shadows, the Glass Trilogy, Haunted Trail, Sequestered) and draws on true life (Adventures of a Small Game Hunter in Jamaica, We Came From Königsberg). Max also maintains an interest in butterflies, photography, the paranormal and other aspects of Fortean Studies.

Most of his other published books are available here, at Writers Exchange Ebooks, and all his books may be viewed on his website: 

Max's book covers are all designed and created by Julie Napier, and other examples of her art and photography may be viewed at

Writers Exchange is a Christian publishing house, although we do publish many, many other genres and not all our authors are Christian:)

We have been publishing and selling books since 2000, but in 2017 we decided to sell MOST of our books exclusively from Amazon. A number of our books are also available from other retailers. We have made it very easy for you to find our books from whichever retailer you prefer, either in the "buy" links on each book page, but also by the Menu Item "Our Books by Retailer" which will show you our books at Amazon, Apple, Barnes and Noble and Kobo.

So what is here, that is not available at Amazon and other distributors?
* "Universe" pages that go into a lot more detail about the various fictional universes some of our authors have created,
* Free Short Stories by our authors (which will also be on our blog)
* upcoming: author interviews - which will also be on our blog (where you can get new content/releases emailed directly to you!)
* and other fun things as we think of them :)

We hope you enjoy!

If you wish to contact us by email (including for submissions), please email:

We have supplied the address as a graphic, to prevent bots, so you will have to type it into your email program manually :)
