J. Conrad Guestabout this book: I once wanted to play baseball, but my parents would have none of that. They may have crushed the dream but not my love affair with the game. After I turned forty, I knew my dream of playing ball was gone, and so it seemed natural, after finishing the January books, that I'd write a baseball novel. Backstop: A Baseball Love Story in Nine Innings was the result.
I've long been fascinated with Ty Cobb the ballplayer. Al Stump's biography was brought to the screen in 1994, with Tommy Lee Jones in the title role. When I saw the film I became fascinated by Cobb the man. I completed The Cobb Legacy in 2010. More than a murder mystery, The Cobb Legacy is the story of a man's search to connect with his dying father while also coming to terms with his adulterous affair and impending divorce, and doubting that love with an old friend can be his. A dash of the paranormal is also part of the story.
