My fourth book, HOW SEATTLE BECAME A BIG-LEAGUE SPORTS TOWN: FROM GEORGE WILSON TO RUSSELL WILSON, will be released in mid-July by Seattle’s Fairgreens Publishing. It’s the consummate Seattle sports bible. It’s gritty. It’s all about the city’s heroes and scandal-makers. It’s 100 stories and more than 200 photos. It’s got a definitive Where Are They Now theme made popular in my time (1980-2009) as a Seattle Post-Intelligencer sports writer. In subtle fashion, it’s a personal memoir. It’ll be a talker for sure. Learn about the UW contract-hit proposal, the cocaine moment at the Rose Bowl and the Sharon Stone-like courtside tease. Want to purchase a book? Drop me a line in the reply section below and I’ll make that happen. Stay tuned for my summer book appearances and readings throughout the Seattle area. We expect to sell out the limited first run fairly quickly.
