I’m reading The Last Trial right now and love that you mentioned Mayfair Ball Park. I live a block away and listen to the crowds roar and the tink of a well hit ball often. Thanks for helping me remember a little slice of my childhood, playing softball or watching my brothers play baseball. I’d love it if you’d mention McGucken Park sometime in one of your books. Named for my Dad who was a mainstay in SE Huntsville sports in the early eighties. He brought the softball World Series here in maybe ‘83. He passed before the Park was built but was a huge proponent of kids and sports. In addition to McGucken Park, he also got the Park on Redstone road built and the one down by Chaffee.

Thanks so much for your message, Rosalyn. My kids have grown up playing baseball and softball at the parks in Huntsville. Mayfair is our home park but we have played many games at McGucken Park and it is a great facility. I am proud to know that it was named for your father. That is a huge honor! The scene at Mayfair in the The Last Trial was written for my Dad, who passed away this past year but loved to watch my boys play from his usual spot just beyond the centerfield fence. Lots of special memories…Thanks again for your note and I hope you enjoy the story!

I read all three and could not put them down! I passed them on to my mother to read, and she felt the same way. Loved all the characters! Anxiously awaiting the next book.
