THE AMERICAN SPORTSWRITER SERIES

Meet James Hoak, a quick-witted national sportswriter who forever finds himself in the middle of mayhem. He has an uncanny knack for infuriating Heisman Trophy winners, major newspaper editors, owners of pro football teams, fellow sportswriters, and even his best friends. But thanks to his out-of-the-box thinking, a code of ethics, mad journalism skills, and a love of life, he breaks the biggest stories in the country. (That is, when he's not wooing budding actresses in L.A. convertibles, maxing out his America Daily expense account, or finding himself on national television for all the wrong reasons). With 24 years of sportswriting experience, novelist Chris Colston (left) gives his AMERICAN SPORTSWRITER series the stamp of authenticity, taking readers behind the scenes through twentysomething James Hoak's eyes.
