Max China was born in London and moved to a seaside town in Essex while still a boy. Grammar school educated, he has worked as a shipping agent, stonemason, salesman and in construction. In 2009, he began working on his lifelong ambition to write a novel.
Published 21 November 2013, The Sister charted in the UK best sellers for Kindle top 100 of all books in January 2014. This led to a listing in the Top 50 Crime Writers to Watch in the same year and received a Gold Medal award from HarperCollins site Authonomy.
Buoyed by its success, Max has gone on to write further novels blending crime, mystery, suspense, horror and the supernatural in a unique style.
His second, The Life and Times of William Boule, is a non-stop action, adventure and crime thriller, following the lives of several characters introduced in The Sister. The story is complete in its own right - you don't have to have read the earlier book to enjoy it. Released late summer 2014, it was well received, gaining excellent reviews.
The third novel, The Night of The Mosquito, is an interesting blend of crime, mystery and psychological thriller. Set against an apocalyptic backdrop, it's a roller-coaster ride of a story!
The fourth book is an expansion of his short story, Don't Turn on The Light.
Other works in the pipeline include another three Miller stories, The Man in Brown, Finding Her, and The Resurrectionists.
He can't write quickly enough, but at the same time, recognises the need to develop great characters, produce good, solid storylines, and quality writing. He hopes those of you who've enjoyed his books so far will continue to do so.
