Maher was born in Amarillo, Texas, where his father was stationed in the Air Force. Shortly afterwards the family moved to Lowell, Massachusetts, where Maher remained through childhood. Upon graduating from Dracut High School, he joined the United States Navy where he served in the Persian Gulf aboard the USS Ramsey. Upon discharge, Maher returned to Lowell. He attended Middlesex Community College and the University of Massachusetts Lowell, where he obtained an undergraduate degree in American studies. He later completed a master's degree in Education with a concentration in English.

From 2004 through the present, Maher authored and edited seven books for publication. He has been translated and published in five countries.

It was a question raised by an undergraduate student at UMass Lowell to Todd Tietchen. He in turn asked Joyce Johnson about it, and she in turn claimed this as her own finding and put it in her book.

However, after 2001 when the Kerouac archives opened up fully at the New York Public Library, it made possible even more research that could be done, and so time was spent there. The most important part of Kerouac's life to me was through the 1940s where h was searching for a voice and into the early 50s when he at last achieved what he was looking for and set about doing his job on earth. The truth is also that I have since moved on to other things and relish the rich diversity there is in reading other material. I wouldn't rule out more books on Kerouac, but I don't think it is likely for the moment.(less)

I am reading more of Aiken's work. It was seeing his grave in Savannah that prompted me to dig deeper into this world of neurosis and memory, even into the novels The Blue Voyage and Ushant. Thus far, all of it is rewarding, challenging and thought-provoking writing bled from damaged goods after his father killed his mother and then himself, and from thereon his proclamation to become a poet at...

“Jim Jarmusch once told me Fast, Cheap, and Good… pick two. If it’s fast and cheap it won’t be good. If it’s cheap and good, it won’t be fast. If it’s fast and good, it won’t be cheap. Fast, cheap and good … pick two words to live by.
