Eden Maxwell is a painter, writer, and kiteflier of some note. He grew up on the mean streets of the inner city and fought his way out of the projects to find his walking shoes.
He has contributed to many publications—from Popular Science to the Encyclopedia Britannica, and his art is in private collection here and abroad. Eden's the bestselling author of Kiteworks and The Magnificent Book of Kites, Sterling Publishing; he's also ghostwritten books for HarperCollins and Kensington publishers.
Eden blogs regularly about purpose, meaning, and persevering as an artist on his website--http://www.edensart.com.
