Clawing your way up through the minor leagues of tennis to reach the ATP tour is difficult enough. But when unseen match fixers threaten and bully players to throw matches so they can cash in on rigged bets, it becomes a matter of life and death.
Caught between unyielding pressure and their own ambition, a handful of aspiring players fight back. The odds are against them, and the stakes couldn’t be higher as they take on the gamblers, all the while fighting to earn their place in the top tier of international tennis.

About the Author
I am an author and freelance journalist in London, Ontario, Canada. I write articles for magazines, newspapers, websites and a variety of interesting organizations. I also teach journalism in the Faculty of Information and Media Studies at Western University in London. When I'm not writing or reading, I play as much tennis as possible. I also play drums. Tangled Strings is a thriller about international tennis gambling and match fixing. Pressured by ruthless gamblers to throw matches, a group of aspiring tennis pros fight back, often with dire consequences. My first novel, Pulling Strings, is a mystery/thriller about murder, politics, baseball and sex -- not necessarily in that order. The story starts with the murder of the popular owner of the Baltimore Orioles, which affects the 2016 presidential race, well underway in neighboring Washington D.C. Thanks for checking in. I hope you enjoy both books. If you do, please consider leaving a review. And drop me a line with questions and suggestions.
