I’ve written five bestselling books. The first three (“Baseball Letters”, Crown Books, 1996; “Every Pitcher Tells A Story”, Times Books, 1999; “Something to Write Home About”, Random House, 2003) ) are based on my correspondence with former baseball players (and some prominent baseball fans) who, through their handwritten letters to me (re-printed exactly as they were written), describe a unique moment or memory that they were involved in, on or off the field. My fourth book, “21 Ways to a Happier Depression” is of the ‘self-help’ variety, and it offers unique ways to alleviate anxiety and depression.
My latest is my first children’s book. It’s called, “Shh…Your Toes Are Sleeping”. It’s about Annabella, a vibrant, active, engaged little girl who is so busy during her days in school and so full of ideas when she comes home that she finds it hard to settle down and go to sleep every night. Until, that is, her mom thinks up an ingenious method of calming down her little girl and helping her to drift into a delicious and peaceful slumber. I did a reading of the book which is below the cover. I hope you get a chance to check out some of my books!
