The first real novel to come down the hopefully long and winding John Maxwell pipeline. The book’s long narrative takes as back to the year 2009, where things were different. Things are certainly different for two people working at Hyperion, Michigan’s local radio station WHYP, Conrad Harris and his friend Cyrus McLean ‘Cy’ Scott. As the story begins, Conrad is . . .

ELEVENSES: THE DARING EXPLOITS OF SECRET AGENTS 1111 AND 711

Spy Romp

By Linda Schoales, editor

May 30, 2009: “Elevenses” is a fluffy, silly romp about the adventures of two spies named Agents 1111 (double eleven) and 711 (seven eleven).
