In the author bio at the end of The Flying Beaver Brothers books it says to visit maxwelleaton.com to see a picture of me saving my brother from a giant vacuum cleaner. This was the case until a recent site overhaul. So in the interest of author bio veracity, above is the photo in question.

Thanks to observant readers Heather and son for bringing this to my attention!

[Editor’s note: The author as pictured is unfortunately a much younger, less grizzled, version of his current self.]

Another disappointing sunset.

Sketch for a forthcoming book.
