In addition to being a superlative musician and creative funnyman who we make sure to give a part in everything we do, Pres Maxson is a NUVO magazine Best of Indy 2016 nominee for Best Local Author in Indianapolis, Indiana. His novel, Bender at the Bon Parisien, has an average rating of 4.7/5 stars on Amazon and has been called "a clever, energetic little yarn with a cast of fascinating characters, a twisty plot worthy of Dashiell Hammett, and a fun sense of humor" (Darrin Snider, Indy In-Tune Radio) with a "fabulously untidy ending" (Nerd Girl Official).
Pres has appeared in support of "Bender" on Indianapolis' NPR affiliate 90.1 WFYI; on internet stations Indy In-Tune and Radio Free Indy; and on the Brother, Brother Beer Cast. Pres also performs live readings, most notably in the spring of 2016 at the Kurt Vonnegut Memorial Library.
A career copywriter, Pres enjoys spending time with his family, playing music, and reading classic fiction and historical nonfiction.
