Editorial Reviews

Review

  1. "The second place winner of the 2015 Jerry Jenkins Writers Guild Operation First Novel contest has written a dramatic and tension-filled tale of a woman trying to reconcile her memory of a perfect father with the flawed man she now knows he was. Set against the backdrop of a Boston Red Sox season, the writing takes a humorous . . . view of the Boston sports fan community. Recommended for readers who enjoy sports-themed novels with complex family dynamics." ~ Library Journal's Review of Double Header, James, Clarice G.  Double Header.  Mountainview. Dec. 2015.
  2. "Clarice James is a sensitive and deft writer who has not only an authentic relationship with the Lord but a powerful relationship with language. You can enjoy both in Double Header."  ~  Daphne Simpkins, author of Nat King Cole: An Unforgettable Life if Music and The Adventures of Mildred Budge Series is also an Adjunct English Instructor at Auburn University in Montgomery, AL
  3. "Double Header gripped me from its opening sentence. I couldn't stop until I'd laughed every last laugh the book elicits and solved each mystery weaving its way through the story with tentacles that grabbed my heart and wouldn't let go." ~ Terrie Todd, Author of The Silver Suitcase
  4. "James pits hyper-organized Casey Gallagher against her brother, laid-back Griffin McGee, for laughs and smart dialogue. But the story turns into an exploration of loss, regrets, and reconciliation as Casey learns that there are aspects of her life she can't--and shouldn't--control." ~ Kathleen D. Bailey, Journalist at Nutfield Publishing of New Hampshire
  5. "Clarice's clear, energetic style moves at a comfortable pace through multiple subplots that she has cleverly interwoven to surprise and entertain us at just the right moments to keep you turning pages. The deeper you get into this Boston-based story, the more you're drawn into the emotional journey . . . " ~ Rev. Toby Quirk, Army retired Lt. Colonel, author of Letters from a Country Pastor and A Squirrel in a Bottle.
  6. "Issues of faith, a father's infidelity, a surprise half-sibling, are all handled with grace." ~ Sophie Cuffe, co-author of Arrow That Flies.

From the Author

This novel--and any others I write--is all my husband's fault. When I first met [Ralph] David James in 2005, I was in the midst of writing a memoir about my past seven years as a widow. When I expressed concern to him about people recognizing themselves in my story, David suggested I turn it into fiction. A logical solution to my emotional dilemma.And there you go--that's the perfect tagline for our marriage. David's been making my life simpler and less confusing since the day I met him. I am thankful every day for his love, patience, kindness, tech support, and quirky sense of humor.
 
My protagonist, Casey Gallagher, has many of the good qualities of my daughter, Erin Hennessey. Thanks, Erin, for your knowledge of running, Fenway, and close mother/daughter relationships.Mostly, thanks for letting me help decorate your house when my creative juices needed time away from the computer.
 
Thanks to my two sons, Christopher and Darby MacEacheron, mainly for their sports knowledge and humorous bantering.You gave me plenty of material for Casey and Griffin, my bickering-sibling characters. I believe Darby came up with the name Double Header. But I'll let you two argue that point.  
 
Thanks also to two of my grandsons, Michael Hennessey and Darin Flynn MacEacheron, who inspired key characters--Boston Red Sox pitcher Mike Hennessey and catcher Darin Flynn. First you lent me your names; then I incorporated some of your physical and personality traits. Whenever I pictured you two while developing these characters, it always made me smile.   
 
I am grateful for my fellow writers and critiquers who helped me in various ways. Here are only a few of them: Mike Anderson dug for the spiritual lessons; Ellen Davison taught me how to show not tell; Lisa Lawmaster Hess corrected my tenses; Cricket Lomicka pushed me to use all five senses; Steven Moore deleted needless blabbering; Jeremiah Peters taught me about tension; Teresa Santoski inspired me with her flawless passages; Terrie Todd uncovered my inconsistencies; and my husband David let me use many of his funniest lines.
 
Thanks to my family and friends for not running away every time I brought up my writing. Thanks as well to my advance readers.Your encouragement and suggestions made my book better.
 
A big thank you to Shaun Kuhn of Suzy-Q Author Coaching for his marketing expertise and sense of humor, and publisher C.J. Darlington and the staff of Mountainview Books LLC for a job done well. Above all, thank you to Jerry B. Jenkins. Without his generosity and desire to give back, there would be no Operation First Novel Contest to enter. 
 
Finally and for always, thank you, Lord Jesus.
