Said freedom has allowed childish antics fueled by adult minds during any era of college life and is the backbone of exaggerated behavior, which is personified in this story."

Retrouvailles A Novel by Bill Chastain
Peachtree Corvette Club
The Streak A Novel by Bill Chastain

Many years ago, I entered sports writing, the land of perpetual adolescence. Participants watch games, interview those who play games, and write about what they saw.  Famed sportswriter Dick Schaap allowed that he wanted to become a “hack” because he loved sports and “could not hit the curveball, the jump shot, or the opposing ball carrier.”  Talk about a shoe that fits.  Covering sports enabled me to travel to places I would never have seen—San Francisco resembled Mars upon first sight. Sharing the journey with other sportswriters enhanced the experience. We enjoyed a lot of laughs.  Now I’m learning to become a fan again while indulging my passion to write books. I love what I’m doing and I find the process gratifying.  I’ve written three novels, The Streak, Peachtree Corvette Club and Retrouvailles.  I invite you to download a sneak peek by clicking on the images above.

Finally, I’m blogging again. The subjects will vary, but they’ll never venture too far from books, writing, movies, and funny experiences. Hopefully you’ll join me on the ride.
