Making My Pitch tells the story of Ila Jane Borders, who despite formidable obstacles became a Little League prodigy, MVP of her otherwise all-male middle school and high school teams, the first woman awarded a baseball scholarship, and the first to pitch and win a complete men’s collegiate game. After Mike Veeck signed Borders in May 1997 to pitch for his St. Paul Saints of the independent Northern League, she accomplished what no woman had done since the Negro Leagues era: play men’s professional baseball. Borders played four professional seasons and in 1998 became the first woman in the modern era to win a professional ball game. Borders had to find ways to fit in with her teammates, reassure their wives and girlfriends, work with the media, and fend off groupies. But these weren’t the toughest challenges. She had a troubled family life, a difficult adolescence as she struggled with her sexual orientation, and an emotionally fraught college experience as a closeted gay athlete at a Christian university. Making My Pitch shows what it’s like to be the only woman on the team bus, in the clubhouse, and on the field. Raw, open, and funny at times, her story encompasses the loneliness of a groundbreaking pioneer who experienced grave personal loss. Borders ultimately relates how she achieved self-acceptance and created a life as a firefighter and paramedic and as a coach and goodwill ambassador for the game of baseball.

Ronnie Irani had an extraordinary career as a first class cricketer and is now a star broadcaster with talkSport. He grew up in Bolton and has his professional debut with Lancashire aged just 16. But frustrated at constantly playing in the 'stiffs', Ronnie took his courage in both hands and moved to Essex - even though he was only vaguely aware it was somewhere near the Dartford Tunnel. He became one of the county's all-time great players, went on to captain them to three trophies and became a legend with the fans. Ronnie is typically honest about his relationships in the game - good and bad; he relates how he used unconventional medical advice to overcome career threatening injuries; he takes you out to the crease and back in the dressing room; he gives you vivid insights into the humour and the heartache, the trials and the triumphs of being a top sports star. And time and time again he shows why he became a favourite with cricket supporters around the world and why Frank Dick added: 'Telling Ronnie Irani that what he wants to achieve can't be done is like lighting a fuse.'

Pitch Black for Fifteen Years is my true story. It starts at the age of thirteen and continues through today. I explain why I had to disappear from the life of my kids; how I became persecuted by the Swiss authorities for being a Chilean citizen; my torture by the Switzerland Federal Police; and how the government of Switzerland has controlled other governments including Chilean, Spanish, Canadian, Italian, French, and all European and international institutions. I am a simple man, but a fighter. My enemy, Angelo Valli, a Swiss mobster who started the persecution in 1997, was allied with Boris Yeltsin, Vladimir Putin, Silvio Berlusconi, Mohammad Kaddafi, Italian criminal organizations, and the Vatican and Italian government. This gave him the power to transform a simple marriage between a Chilean and a Swiss woman into a hell. To defend myself, I have used secret information that a criminal organization or secret services put into my hands. Why did I have to have the protection of a criminal organization against governments and international institutions? And how have I survived? I tell all in this book, which is really a "letter to my kids." About the Author Originally from Chile, Pedro Antonio Leon Rubio now resides in Berlin, Germany. "I am being persecuted by the institutions created to protect the society, protect the family, and protect the people. Instead, the Switzerland government is persecuting me to protect and keep intact the human rights reputation of Switzerland." The author wrote this book to express his love for his children and to protect them. Publisher's website: http: //

An honest and poignant look into the deeply intimate yet platonic relationship between a gay English teacher and his young female protégée—each seeking connection and acceptance—as reflected by the decade of letters they exchanged. It was an improbable relationship from the start—a high school English teacher, still in the closet, and his best student. From the confines—and protection—of his closet, Amy’s teacher wrote these letters, letters that were read, cherished, answered, and then locked away for years. Now Amy looks back at the decade of intimate letters that preceded her teacher’s untimely death, collects the shards left by their clumsy, sometimes violent attempts to unmask each other, and counts again the cost of knowing and being known. Every writer needs a room of his own, but for some people, at certain times, and in certain circumstances, the best you can do is a closet. Timely and relevant, this is a love story of the most contemporary kind, a rare glimpse into an intimate relationship between teacher and student—a relationship whose effects are still being felt decades later. It’s raw and honest and moving, a poignant commentary on the values that unite us all.

Rooster Cobb is in trouble, with his school, with his mother, with his girlfriend. He smokes too much and he hates his stepfather. In fact, he might not graduate from high school. But he just doesn't seem to care. That is until the guidance counselor and the principal come up with a plan to get Rooster through grade twelve, out of their lives forever and possibly on the right track with his life. The last thing Rooster wants to do is coach The Strikers, a bowling team of special-needs adults, especially when he finds out he's going to be mentored by the most unpopular girl in school, the principal's daughter, Elma. When he starts to take coaching seriously, his friends make fun of him, and his girlfriend accuses him of taking the easy way out. But when one of The Strikers dies unexpectedly, Rooster discovers there are as many ways to be a hero as there are ways to mess up.

Ed Loy has made some changes. He has moved into an apartment in Dublin's city centre, leaving behind his family home: he wants to break free of the ghosts of his own past, to live in the teeming present. But if that's what he wants for his own life, it's not always what his clients will permit: the baggage they bring with him propel him relentlessly into past. The police are working along similar lines with their new Cold Case unit. Looking back over a fifteen-year-old murder, they are satisfied by their original findings – but not so Loy. He has been hired by the victim’s daughter to investigate the suspects ignored by the first investigation: a rich property developer, an ex-IRA man and Loy’s own nemesis, George Halligan. But Loy has to watch his back: in the murky world into which he has fallen, he can’t tell which threats come from the IRA and which from the police protecting their old case. Can Loy persuade his longstanding friend DI Dave Donnelly to help solve the Fogarty case, or does he have to rely on the murderous George Halligan? Does it all go back to the IRA? Are the men who gave the commands now respectable citizens? In his toughest case yet, Ed Loy delves into the dirty side of life in the new Ireland, where progress comes at a price and no one is free of their past.
