MEET THE AUTHOR
Maley wrote a screenplay set in “bleeding Kansas” of the 1850s. Afterwards, his readers all asked to know more about one of the minor characters, a runaway slave boy. More research followed and the work morphed into a novel for middle grades and young adults with themes of literacy, freedom and duty.
Maley has produced four short comedy films. Coincidentally, people are starting to ask him to do eulogies.
Maley is a confirmed flatlander. He and his wife live in Oklahoma. When he has his dobber down, he likes to spend time up home in the Flint Hills of Kansas, which helped inspire the story Three Links Of Chain.
