“I had asthma as a child and often stayed indoors, envious of my friends playing outside. To entertain myself, I’d write stories, morning, noon, and night. One might say I was (and still am) a bit OCD. My motto in life: If it’s worth doing, it’s worth overdoing. Looking back, those days were the building blocks that launched my creativity through writing, that combined with my love of running, led me to sports fiction.”
