While Player is my most recent release, it is actually my very first book. I wrote in high school when I was only sixteen. Don’t worry, I updated it quite a bit and it’s pretty modern now. It was originally titled “Playboy”, but since lingo has changed a lot since the nineties, I decided to change it to Player. Revamping the story got me thinking about the old days, so I pulled out some old photos, including this prom picture! The guy in the picture is my friend George. It’s been almost twenty years, and he’s still one of my very best friends. He was also the inspiration for Josh, the main character in Player.
My friend George never got into quite as much trouble as Josh does, but trust me; we had our fair share of crazy times. Don’t ever let anyone tell you that the private school kids are better behaved that the public school kids. But that’s another story. In the meantime, reminiscence about the nineties with me and listen to “The Freshman” by The Verve Pipe. If I had to pick a theme song for “Player”, this would be it!
