About Drake

Welcome, kindred spirit! While the world knows me as Maxwell Alexander Drake, those I consider allies and friends simply call me Drake. It would be an honor to count you among them.

Throughout my 20-year career, I've earned accolades by crafting tales for industry giants such as Sony's EverQuest Next and Catalyst Game Lab's Shadowrun, with tales coming soon for the famed Harnworld RPG setting. I've had the privilege of working on projects with renowned figures in the industry, including such New York Times Bestsellers as Ed Greenwood, Michael A. Stackpole, Timothy Zahn, Aaron Allston, and others, as well as illustrious illustrators like Larry Elmore, Lars Grant-West, Jason Engle, Cyril Vander Haegen, and more.

I've also had the humbling opportunity to share my insights on creative writing worldwide. Notably, I hold the distinction of being the sole author invited to San Diego Comic Con for an uninterrupted 16-year streak, and I'll always cherish the unforgettable adventure of being the only author invited to speak at the inaugural Saudi Arabia Comic Con.

My mission with Starving Writer Studio is to build a direct connection between the creator's heart and the soul of those seeking fulfillment. In this new digital landscape we find ourselves in, why should there be a cartel between you and me? What purpose do they now serve, apart from enriching themselves at the expense of my hard work? None, I say.

My hope is that you've ventured here, noble adventurer, lured by the treasures I've crafted. If so, I beseech you, do not feed an industry that's lost its reverence for your heart’s passions! Instead, bestow your endorsement upon the one who genuinely cares about your desires.

Here, you'll discover everything you need to support my endeavors, enabling my pen to weave countless more mesmerizing tales. I invite you to peruse the offerings in my Scriptorium. I assure you, the couriers I employ are as reliable as those of the behemoth known as Amazon. And fear not, in doing so, King Bezos' coffers shan't run dry without my paltry contributions.

If you're interested in learning more about my journey and future plans, please use the portal below to continue this discussion.
