About the Author

Lee Maynard was born and raised deep in the mountains of West Virginia, a location that drives the emotion and grit of most of his writing. He says he had never had a "career." Rather, he sought out "day jobs" while doing his real job--writing. Among several other things, he has been a criminal investigator, college president, and COO of a national experiential education organization. He now lives and writes at the edge of an Indian reservation in the high desert of New Mexico. He is the author of The Pale Light of Sunset: Scattershots and Hallucinations in an Imagined Life and theCrum trilogy: Crum, Screaming with the Cannibals, and The Scummers.


"It is part action-adventure novel, part off-road motorcycling memoir, part philosophical meditation about the nature of danger and courage, about love, both lost and found, about friendship & trust, about aging and death, about the pure pleasure of revenge. This is a spooky, beautiful dream of a novel."
Chuck Kinder, author of Honeymooners: A Cautionary Tale and Last Mountain Dancer: Hard-Earned Lessons in Love, Loss, and Honky-Tonk Outlaw Life

"Once 'on the road, ' Maynard's characters make us want to follow them as far North as their endurance will take us."
Gary Fincke, author of The Proper Words for Sin and A Room of Rain

"It is a rollicking contemporary picaresque--a tale of friendship and adventure and a personal quest for meaning. If Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance had been written by Edward Abbey, it would be Lee Maynard's Magnetic North."
Doug Van Gundy, author of A Life Above Water
