GAME: an American Novel

$4.99

Year in and year out the football powerhouse Hert City Trojans import a ringer to fuel their championship charge, but their luck is about to change. In the small backwater town of Tsalagee, first-year coach Donny Doyle knows the only way he can fulfill his promise to unseat the Hert City juggernaut, is to beat them at their own GAME. But in his own recruit, the mammoth and powerful, yet troubled and ominous Leotis McKinley, Doyle finds more than he bargained for. Truman's character-rich novel GAME spins an energetic tale around the intensity of small-town high school football in America. And yet, amid the fast-paced drive of the story, lies an account of the human spirit struggling through adversity and finding victory. Readers of any age or gender will feel the triumph, honor, and glory that comes from theā€¦GAME.

"I couldn't put it down. [GAME] is really well written and the action kept me going until the end." - Fred W. Hoster, Executive Director Dallas Fellowship of Christian Athletes

"A masterly written tale of rural football. Each character is richly portrayed...you feel like you are on the sidelines with these kids. GAME goes way beyond the game of high school football." - Brock Sawyer, Editor, Vype Magazine

"I thoroughly enjoyed [GAME]. I will tell other coaches about this book."
Gary Sanchez, President, New Mexico High School Coaches Association

I'm a native Oklahoman, born in the small town of Miami. Spent most of my life here in the Sooner State, except during my military time and a couple of brief sojourns to Texas and Missouri. I hold a bachelor's degree in English from the University of Tulsa. As a Vietnam Era veteran, I served with the U.S. Army's 7th Infantry Division near the Korean DMZ from 1967 to 1968. 

Fresh out of college I worked as a high school teacher and coach, but transitioned into the business world after a few years where I morphed into an IT geek. Slogged through that grind until 'retiring' in 2007 to become a full-time writer. 

So far, I have four books published, all novels, all set in Oklahoma, present day and past. I grew up in small-town heartland America, and feel very blessed by that. My books, I hope, reflect that. 

GAME, is a coming of age novel set in the fictional small town of Tsalagee the corrupted phonetic of the Cherokee word Tsalagi - CHA-la-gey). Treasure Kills, Legends of Tsalagee, set in the same town, was/is a branch into a different genre - one of mystery and adventure. Always a fan of westerns, and recognizing Oklahoma's rich history, I wrote Red Lands Outlaw, the Ballad of Henry Starr, a historical novel in the turn of the 20th Century Indian Territory and based on exploits of that notorious Cherokee outlaw. That was so much fun I followed-on with West of the Dead Line, Tales of an Indian Territory Lawman, a fictional account of perhaps the greatest lawman of them all: the ex-slave, black American, adopted Creek Indian, Deputy U.S. Marshal Bass Reeves.

I'm currently nearing completion on two more novels: Book 2 of the (proposed) Legend of Tsalagee series, and the first short novel of what I'm calling "The Jubal Smoak Mysteries." With the latter I'm combining my two favorite writing genres: western and murder mystery.
