Fiction author comes over from editorial staff with baseball epic
aois21 is happy to announce the signing of Tommy Reynolds as an aois21 Creative. Tommy recently completed his first manuscript, the baseball epic currently titled The Game: Baseball & America Growin’ Up Together. This title will soon be available in paperback and eBook everywhere books are sold.
Liam Miller, the son of a wealthy and well-connected father in early 1700s Ireland, immigrates to America in 1732. Through connections and hard work he becomes prosperous, with each generation after him playing a pivotal role in significant events in America's early history. Succeeding generations embrace baseball, producing successive major leaguers. They play integral roles during four of the most crucial periods of baseball history: its origins in the 1870s, the Black Sox scandal into the roaring twenties, the civil rights era and the dawning of the Major League Baseball Players Union in the 1960s and 1970s, and the modern union of the late 1990s and today. Parallels are drawn from 1865 through today, depicting the rise of baseball as the national pastime coinciding with America becoming a world power.
Tommy Reynolds was born in New York City and raised in Long Beach, Long Island, seven houses from the beach. He attended Chaminade High School and Manhattan College, where he was a sports writer and co-sports editor of the school newspaper, The Quadrangle, covering the Jaspers basketball, baseball, and crew teams. He is an active racquetball player, softball player, and umpire, currently residing in bucolic Mendham, NJ with his three children.
