First-ever posting - a little wobbly here.
A book I've written while recovering from brain surgery (I was bored while laying in bed) will be released by Servant Books tomorrow. I hope you'll see that "Burst - A Story of God's Grace When Life Falls Apart" is not a big boo-hoo session, but rather a memoir rich in (attempted) humor, animated story-telling, baseball, love, terror, laughter, Ireland, a giant named Tommy, a savior named Krista, graces and graces and graces - and a big, fat miracle at the end. A real miracle - not one of those, "Oh my goodness, it's a miracle! I found Sparky hiding in the basement after vanishing for 20 minutes."
Christ's presence is on every page.
For 10 years I was a sportwriter. Now I like to write about God stuff and my walk in my Catholic faith.
I was an inch from death a short while ago. But God stretched out his arms and pushed back.
I'm indebted. ...
By the way, if you're in Washinton D.C. this Sunday (Jan. 23), the nice folks at the National Shrine have set me up for my first book signing.
