People from across the country can’t often come to New Jersey (or nearby) for an author visit, yet people sometimes wish for signed and personalized copies of books – especially heart-warming stories of family, faith, love, compassion, and growth like Scattering the Ashes. (If you haven’t read it yet, what are you waiting for?)
I decided to give fans, readers, and everyone the opportunity to purchase a signed and personalized copy of my wonderful novel.
“I want to let you know how much I enjoyed your novel.
I loved the characters and I could parallel Sam’s relationship with his dad to mine with my father in many ways. My father wouldn’t have thought to have me scatter his ashes, but if he had, Yankee Stadium would have been first and Cooperstown probably second.
The fact that so much of it happened in local NJ settings also added a nice twist.
So I wanted to congratulate you for a great job and thank you for the book. It was a fun read.”
I was recently interviewed on the New Books Network Podcast to discuss The Least Among Them.
You can listen to this interview below.
From the site:
The Least Among Them: 29 Players, Their Brief Moments in the Big Leagues, and a Unique History of the New York Yankees(Artemesia, 2021) is a most special baseball book that looks at the New York Yankees history in an original, unique, and never before written manner. Throughout their history, the New York Yankees have been defined by the legends and the successes of their most famous players. But, as part of their long history, the Yankees have also fielded players that have become lost to history. This book is those players’ story, telling the unique histories of the men whose entire major league baseball career lasted but a single game with that game being played as a New York Yankee. While these players may be forgotten, their stories are compelling. Filled with a unique Yankee history, single game stats, and a love of baseball, The Least Among Them tells the story of baseball’s most successful franchise in an entirely new way.
