About the Author

Jan Sumner was born in Independence, Kansas, but has spent his entire life in Denver, Colorado. He is a graduate of Metropolitan State College in Denver. He has been active in baseball his entire life and in 1993 started throwing batting practice for the Colorado Rockies. He threw for them through the 1999 season and wrote a book about his experiences called Fat Pitch, published in 2001 by JaDan Publishing. It's an insightful and humorous behind the scenes look at the Rockies from their first days at Mile High Stadium through their first five years at Coors Field. He then wrote a murder mystery, again publsihed by JaDan Publishing, Jack Zane: Evil at Storm Lake , about a serial killers reach from the grave, haunting lives twenty years after his death.

Jan Sumner and JaDan Publishing then wrote and published, Legacy of a Monarch: an American Journey, the biography of Byron "Mex" Johnson, an All-Star Negro League baseball player of the 1930s-1940s. It is a history of not only a black baseball player but of an African-Americans journey through American history. With a forward by President Clinton and an introduction by Don Baylor, Legacy of a Monarch was honored and inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, June 10th, 2006, with its author, Jan Sumner, getting to present the book and answer questions about the man it was written about.

Seams is Jan's latest novel, a fictional trip taking the Cummings family of Washington, Missouri through the Depression, WWII and a life devoted to our national pastime centered around their love of the St. Louis Cardinals. Baseball is a timeless game that weaves its magic, heartbreak and exhilaration, yet somehow stays wonderfully unchanged. This is the story of three generations of one family set against the landscape of the heartland of America and its national pastime.

Jan has also co-authored and published Face To Face With Sports Legends by Joe Cullinane, When Pro Football Was Fun by Vic Boccard, and The Mental Side of Hitting by Mike Epstein.
