About the Author

Long before Ward Irvin had thoughts of writing Road to Rupp, he was born into a modest family in Louisville, KY. The second of five boys, Irvin received his elementary and middle school education in public school and spent his high school years at an all-boy military school. He later attended The University of Kentucky where he met his wife, Belinda. Upon graduation, Ward and Belinda married and later parented three sons. The family moved to Charleston, SC, in the Fall of 1978 where they currently reside. When Ward is not writing, his hobbies include playing guitar, cycling and swimming. He has published several sports-related articles and has composed over 200 songs. It is Ward’s love of teamwork and competitive sports that was the inspiration for this story. Road to Rupp is his first novel. To learn more about Ward and to follow the development of future titles in the JoWayne Boone series, please visit or

Road to Rupp was an enjoyable read. If you ever took part in a team sport, you will be taken back to that time and you will recognize and bond with these characters. I enjoyed the snappy dialog and sometime laugh out loud situations. I am looking forward to Ward Irvin's next book.
