About the Author


Richard Maxwell has been fascinated with marbles since his boyhood days, growing up in the rural town of Whiting, Kansas. A Kansas State University graduate, Rich earned his Master's Degree in Urban Education from Saint Louis University, St. Louis, Missouri. Like many Baby Boomers, Rich has had several careers - teaching, sales, faith-based development and extensive writing for trade magazines. Twelve years ago his passion for marble collecting was ignited again, when his wife, Lynn, gave him a book on marbles for his birthday. This first-of-kind book, Collecting Marbles: A Beginner's Guide has united both of Rich's current hobbies. Rich and Lynn live in the Kansas City area where one of their favorite pastimes is showing children fun ways to play with marbles, from the old game of Ringer to roller coasters contraptions. But Rich is best known today for his pursuit of old marbles.
