Overview

Star Mavin, a woman with remarkable golf talent, dreams of winning a men’s tournament so she can play in golf’s premier event, The Victors. For her, nothing less will prove to her father, who left the pro tour, and her mother, who ran off with a Victors champion, that she’s not the loser her mother once called her. Skeptical of her own chances to beat the guys, Star marries and caddies for an up-and-coming pro. But despite her considerable help, he doesn’t win, and then a family crisis rips her away from her husband, sets a deadline, and pushes Star to test her own skill in the world of men’s tournament golf.
Now Star must outplay the men while enduring the sexist abuse that still spews from golf’s elitists, those committed to defending their male-dominated kingdom. Star finds a faithful caddie, a scarred gentleman who is a victim of the elitists himself, and he joins Star in her quest. As the gender-based conflict heats up and gains national attention, Star learns who the real victors are, and she finds that sometimes you have to give up something so you can play a more rewarding game.

Meet the Author

Early on S. J. learned that in the world of fiction an underdog can win. One of his first favorite reads was a novel called THE KID WHO BATTED 1.000, a tale about a last-to-first-place baseball team. Plenty corny, but he still thinks it’s better than the movie ANGELS IN THE OUTFIELD. The clincher for his writing career might have been when he discovered alliteration, though he couldn’t have defined or even pronounced the word. In first grade he wrote a little tale entitled, ahem, “On Porpoise on Purpose.” He doesn't remember the details, except that his young male hero, riding the back of a big fish, performed some bold deed of great import. And no, Flipper wasn’t on TV yet. From there, he gathered enough literary acumen that his eighth grade teacher told him he had an ear for dialogue, and then somehow he won the county spelling bee, and then what seems like a few days ago he grew up, though his dear wife, son, and daughter might question that last assertion.

Some honest-to-goodness authors told him he could write a bit, so he submitted a few short pieces of fiction, some of which were published. Then he picked his own underdog and wrote a novel about an amateur woman golfing against the guys, and he called it THE VICTORS CLUB. He very much wants folks to read it.

"The Victors Club" is a book about all aspects of life, not just golf, as the cover may suggest. It is a story of love, loss, family, friends, life's struggles, and finding that your greatest victories in life may not be what you expected at all. SJ Crown's writing technique is excellent. The characters and settings instantly came alive in my mind -- I can easily see this book as a movie! I am looking forward to reading more from this gifted author!
