About the Book

Gifts of the Gods is a fast-paced fictional story about Michael Grange, the greatest baseball player of all time. One cannot judge a book by its cover. Baseball is only the stage from which our hero launches his career. The trails and tribulations of his journey through the Major Leagues begins with an old-time scout, a devoted family, a unique contract and an appetite for the flesh. As Grange grows, so does his appreciation of the gifts the Gods bestowed upon him. After attaining fame and fortune as a superstar sports icon, he turns his attention to the domination of the corporate world. Grange's altruistic philosophy inspires him to create several benevolent trusts to 'help people help themselves.'

After enduring a horrific personal tragedy, Michael Grange begins to weave the emotional threads of his life back together and undertake even greater challenges. With his baseball career nearing its completion, Grange anticipates his position in the world order and renders decisions that astonish the country.

Join me now and enter the life of a person the Gods have shared their Gifts with. I sincerely hope you enjoy reading the story as much as I enjoyed writing it. To whet your appetite, here are a few pages from Michael Grange's life.

About the Author

Born in 1956, I was raised in south Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and currently reside in Horsham, Pennsylvania, a northern suburb of the city. I retired from a career as a financial consultant with a large U.S. insurance company in 1996. I graduated from the American College in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania and hold the professional designations of CLU and ChFC. I am married with one child and a playful Maltese named 'Chablis.' I stumbled upon writing as a hobby to pass the time in my retirement. In addition to expressing my imagination on paper, I enjoy golf, travel, wine collecting and baseball.
