Radio Daze with Brian Crowell

I had some fun recently visiting with Brian Crowell and his partner in crime Mark Jeffers on the Clubhouse Report, their weekly golf/sports/whatever talk show on WFAS Radio. The Hartsdale, NY, station is at AM 1230.

While I was officially there to plug my novel Heart of Diamonds, we also talked about all sorts of golf, including the FedEx Cup, the Ryder Cup, and the LPGA's controversial but never-adopted policy to require players to demonstrate English proficiency. Click to hear an mp3 excerpt from the program.

Sudden Death Is Sudden Fun

James Patterson said it best, “You like golf, you like murder mysteries, then Sudden Death is your book."

Michael Balkind’s Sudden Death is the story of PGA Tour star Reid Clark, a sometimes not-very-likeable hero who competes—and wins—at the highest levels of competitive golf while literally under the gun from an anonymous assailant. Reid perseveres despite the cloud of death hovering over him, making for a suspenseful, hard-charging plot.

I particularly enjoyed Balkind’s description of places like Westchester Country Club in Harrison, where I play frequently. Now that I’ve read Sudden Death, in addition to the extreme elevation changes, tight fairways, and ridiculously difficult greens, I can add visions of a sniper lurking in the trees to the list of hazards to be considered the next time I tee it up there.
