Who doesn’t like options?

When she discovers that Isaia is actually dying, and his mom is trying to keep it a secret from his dad, things get a violent shove into complicated…and then contagious. She’ll never be the same again. Just when she’s got more on her plate than she can handle, she accidentally gets tangled up with the most powerful crime family in Venice.

Jean's Writing

It seems that way. 

I haven’t slept much this week. Each night I’ve tossed and turned watching the clock as my mind raced. Often pain and discomfort that keep me awake but the last few nights this was not the case. No, the events of the past week rushed at my thoughts like a swarm of bees evicted from their hive.

This is a writing blog. But, is there anything more important to write about than what is happening around us?

In times of crisis as well as celebration, it is the arts that express our humanity. 

Painters put images on canvas, singers raise their voices in song, photographers capture the moment, and writers write. We write in newspapers, books and now the internet. We write to preserve, share, and inform.

Today I’m sharing. A memory that has stayed with me more so than any other from my young childhood.

Going down swinging is not an option . . .

Survival is the name of the game when two obsessed men teeter on the cusp of madness in a war over a kids’ baseball field in this thriller based on a true story.

Travel baseball promoter Rob Barkus has a full bench. He’s backed by a corrupt board of directors, a sports-fixated high school administration, and a mob of crazy travel baseball parents. He’ll stop at nothing to kill the town’s sandlot baseball league so that his elite travel teams can take over its beautiful Babe Ruth baseball field.

The only obstacle between Barkus and his field of dreams is David Thompson, a Civil War buff, and burned-out lawyer. When Thompson steps up to save the crumbling league for his son and the rest of the sandlot players in town, Barkus unleashes a cunning and ruthless attack against David, his family, and his teenaged league of misfit players.

Thompson is outnumbered and surrounded. He’s like a man who walked into quicksand. The harder he struggles to save the league, the deeper he sinks. On top of it all, Thompson is stuck in a family Catch-22. If he surrenders, he might lose his son’s love along with his own self-respect, not to mention losing the game of summer for the sandlot kids in town. Yet if he doesn’t back down, it threatens his marriage and deprives his son of any chance to play on the high school team.

Thompson is on an emotional roller coaster and he can’t get off. He is fighting his own civil war as he struggles to make a difference in the town he cherishes without harming the family he loves.

Standing alone and pushed to his breaking point, he needs to figure out when to fold and when to fight. One thing is for sure: if he finally snaps, he won’t take any prisoners.

Captivating characters lead double lives and keep secrets in this award-winning page-turner, laced with humor, about a man who takes a stand and risks it all to make a difference in a world gone mad.

New York Times bestselling author Margot Livesey says Swyers “has created a man for all seasons” in David Thompson and calls Saving Babe Ruth “an absorbing and compulsively readable novel.”

In a foreword, Babe Ruth’s grandson, Tom Stevens, calls Saving Babe Ruth a “great story.”

Read Saving Babe Ruth as the prequel to the Lawyer David Thompson Series which starts with The Killdeer Connection as the first book. The Killdeer Connection was selected as a 2017 winner in Amazon’s international Kindle Scout writing competition.

Saving Babe Ruth is an Amazon multiple category bestseller.
