My novel, Off The Fairway, is now published and available on Amazon.com -
Regular members of TST know that I have been teasing this for the past few months. It is the story of a talented but very troubled professional golfer, Billy Edwards. Here is the teaser for the novel -
Top-flight professional golfers need three things to succeed on the PGA Tour: talent, desire, and determination. Tour winner Billy Edwards added a fourth. Cocaine. Suspensions, personal disasters, and legal nightmares did nothing to debunk Billy’s belief that without that fourth element, he would never succeed. But competing on the tour and having a drug addiction were two worlds that were not both sustainable. Something had to give…and many believed it would be his career.
What goes through the mind of a professional athlete while they are competing on the largest stage? And how do they do this while under then influence and in denial? How can anyone get close enough to find out to even offer help when walls of resistance carefully erected and painstakingly nurtured keeps everyone at bay? Two different wives could not do it.
Suspensions from the tour couldn’t. Even being arrested could not stop Billy from destroying himself. Only one person had the access and the trust to accomplish what no one else could.
Get inside the ropes and inside the head of a talented but troubled athlete as he attempts to negotiate a minefield of his own making. Will his talent and his mind power succeed over the dark urges residing in his head, or will feeding the beast force him off the tour…or kill him?
I hope you enjoy it!
