Press Articles Desert Press reporter Joselyn Villalobos sorts out the details of the 4th annual High Desert Book Festival in Hesperia, California. Red City Review says the novel is “unexpectedly powerful, perhaps because you wouldn’t expect a story about sport-stealing aliens to carry such emotional weight.” IndieReader.com says the author “marvelously marries his knowledge of basketball with his interest in science fiction to create a fun, fascinating read with page-turning action, unexpected plot twists and laugh-out-loud humor.” Self-Publishing Review awards 5 stars to This Was Never About Basketball, calls the book “thoroughly entertaining” and “a remarkable young adult novel.” The author takes time away from outlining the sequel to This Was Never About Basketball to write an article on the economics of high school sports for the Lawrence Business Magazine. Writer/quixotic philosopher/Green socialist/irregular adjunct English professor Daniel Casey (aka @misanthropester) takes a hard look at the book. Craig Leener discusses story structure with award-winning writer, speaker and social entrepreneur Beth Doane. Mason Nesbitt, sports editor of the Signal Newspaper in Santa Clarita, California, sits down with the author for a candid Q&A.
