About this product
- DescriptionRetired mir league hockey player Michael Verita was content. He was back in the small Wisconsin town where he grew up getting paid to write about the sport he loved. Days were spent on the lake and nights in the rink surrounded by loyal friends. Life was comfortable until a letter from his late beloved grandmother changed everything. A shocking inheritance and a special woman's wish thrust Michael into a presidential campaign where his honesty, pragmatism, intelligence, and irreverence capture the attention of the nation's voters. Now a common man with uncommon sense is challenging the political establishment. As the sitting President and his top contender scramble to discredit their new rival, the American people will decide if Michael Verita is a one-hit wonder or the leader our country truly needs.
- Author BiographyMichael Marotta grew up in Lockport, New York watching the Buffalo Sabres and making up stories about anything that crossed his mind. He spent much of his young life skating on the frozen ponds and ice rinks of Western New York and Southern Ontario, and learning life lessons from his grandmother-a lovely woman with a fanciful notion that he would one day be a sportscaster, or run for office. His first novel, The Platypus Party, is his way of fulfilling the promise she saw in him. In 1998, Michael and his wife, Jennifer, grew weary of Western New York winters and moved their young family to Franklin, Tennessee, where they live with their two children (Jake and Emily) and dog/child wannabe, (Mojo). Michael remained active in Nashville's growing hockey scene for a number of years. He coached a local high school team for four seasons, and played men's league hockey with the real-life inspiration for Parts Unknown (his fictional team) until a fifth knee surgery sidelined him for good in 2013. He now spends his spare time writing, golfing and recruiting friends and family to Tennessee. Learn more at www.mm-wordsandpages.com.
