Hello All, I wanted to start a discussion about some of the great sports books on this site by relatively new authors. In my book, Swarm, NFL hopeful Rodney Morgan was on the verge of having it all until he refused to do the bidding of a dangerous mob boss named, Genco Giuseppe. Bent on making an example of Rodney his henchmen cause a deadly accident that robs him of his future in professional sports and claims the lives of his wife and unborn child. Broken and running for his life Rodney is contemplating suicide until he meets a football coach in Sunbury Georgia that changes his life.
What is Swarm?
The Swarm is an original idea that came to me one day on the way to work while I was in Saudi Arabia. It was a vision of a football team coming out of a tunnel and entering a very harsh environment that's all I saw. With no previous writing experience I taught myself how to formulate my idea into what it is today.
What is it about?
Swarm is about a lot of things. Being considered an underdog is one of them. You have a Football team, who in their own rights, are dominate but are considered underdogs when matched up against teams that have national recognition. A second chance is another great way to describe it. The main character named Rodney Morgan, named after a good friend of mine but no true relation, is put in a situation where the world could be at his finger tips. And in an instant, it's all gone which leaves him broken to the point where suicide feels like the only option left in his life that makes sense. This story is about redemption and hard work. That's what it takes for our main character to prove to others and more importantly himself that his life matters and that he has a purpose to strive for again.
It's a real engaging book that will give you the ability to feel a lot of different emotions and put sports and life into a real prospective.
