1. Give me the “elevator pitch” for your book in five to ten sentences.
Jason Wyatt vowed that he would fulfill his deceased brother’s collegiate-football dreams. Despite a growing number of injuries, he is willing to risk anything, even his health, to uphold that promise. With recruiting underway and a football future imminent, he meets Riley, a green-eyed beauty, with a haunting and unforgettable past and an overprotective father.
Jason tries to balance young love with football, and as he nears high school graduation, he is confronted with a new set of life-altering obstacles to both.
2. Why did you become an indie writer?
Since I am still a student and my schedule isn’t too flexible, I decided that the self-publishing route would be the easiest and most efficient way to get this book out there.
3. Have you been traditionally published? Why or why not?
No, this is my first book.
