I am a veteran writer/editor at some great newspapers in the American West, including The Denver Post, Eugene Register-Guard, Santa Rosa Press Democrat, and the Bend Bulletin. I have multiple writing awards, and have been an integral part of staffs honored as the best in the nation.
I have four protagonists, ranging from a kid crossing from adolescence to adulthood (the subject of "One Summer Season: A Young Man's Brutal Baptism Into Love And Baseball") to a former Marine with a world of secrets. I love to detail the challenges, losses and triumphs I toss at these characters.
I love to travel, experience new things, and learn something every day. I love family, good friends, cappuccinos, great movies, novels that grab me by the collar and pull me along, and creating characters that challenge readers, Thanks for purchasing my novels. I hope you are challenged and edified as you read my novel.

One Summer Season: A Young Man's Brutal Baptism Into Love And Baseball
by Chris Metteer
R.W. Clay has the world on a string, the hometown hero who can hit the baseball a country mile. No one stays young forever. He steps into an adult world that doesn't care about hometown heroes or high school stardom. Coaches try to change him, an opposing pitcher known as Muy Mal Hombre tries to hurt him, and women want him for different reasons. Hero? Nah, just a young man meeting life head-on.
