Well, Misty and I have done it again!
Grand Slam, the baseball reunion story that was Misty’s brainchild, will be released on January 29, 2014, by Secret Cravings. This is a novella, barely 15,000 words, which deals with a secret, that once revealed, may change the lives of all those involved.
While it sounds odd to say it’s a sports’ romance, the truth is women like sports and women like romance. Why not write a story with a sport-playing hero? Baseball is the great leveller. It’s considered America’s past-time, but it’s popular all over the world. You don’t have to have money to play baseball–you need a stick, a ball and a field–preferably away from anyone’s car or windows. People–boys and girls, play ball in Japan as well as in Canada. Some of the best ballplayers come from the Caribbean–Roberto Clemente. During World War II, while the men served overseas, women picked up the slack and formed a professional baseball league. There’s an excellent movie, A League of Their Own, that tells the story. They even have their own display at the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York.
