Lincoln Peirce is a New York Times bestselling author and cartoonist. His comic strip Big Nate, featuring the adventures of an irrepressible sixth grader, appears in over 400 newspapers worldwide and online. In 2010 he began a series of illustrated novels based on the strip, which have sold over sixteen million copies. Max and the Midknights originated as a proposed TV series set in the Middle Ages. Lincoln later rewrote the story - which includes hundreds of dynamic illustrations in Lincoln's trademark style - as a medieval adventure centered around Max, a ten-year-old who dreams of becoming a knight. When he is not writing or drawing, Lincoln enjoys playing ice hockey, doing crossword puzzles, and hosting a weekly radio show devoted to vintage country music. He and his wife, Jessica, have two children and live in Portland, Maine.
