I. M. Maynard
I.M. Maynard is a survivor…middle school survivor, that is, having successfully navigated the landmines and pots of gold that occur daily during the middle grades.
Middle school was also the period in I.M. Maynard’s life when he was severely bitten by the writing bug, a devastating condition that has consumed enormous time and energy, ultimately leading to his writing of Roger Tarkington and the Magic Calendar: Quest for Middle School Greatness, the first in his middle grade time travel series, a modern day Diary of a Wimpy Kid meets Groundhog Day adventure.
When he isn't writing, I.M. Maynard enjoys reading. His favorite contemporary middle grade novelists include:
Born and educated in the Midwest, I.M. Maynard now resides on the East Coast, home to thousands of middle schools (and likely equal numbers of middle school bullies).
