Ryan M. Shelton's passion for writing began with his first letter to Santa. He’s been writing in some capacity ever since and especially loves to pen stories about the great outdoors and sports. He earned his bachelor’s degree from Northwestern Oklahoma State University and teaches high school English and coaches tennis.
A family man, Ryan is active in his church and loves to serve his community. Ryan can be seen booting routine ground balls on the dusty softball fields when he’s not on a river, changing his daughter’s diaper, or helping his boys with their Pinewood Derby cars.

Vincent Preston is in real trouble. With absentee parents, he raises himself, barely graduating high school, and has one chance to get out of his small town: baseball. He has a strong arm, but unfortunately he is wild, out of control. Thankfully, his English teacher, Mrs. Dean, introduces him to her husband, “Grandpa Dean,” a gruff WWII veteran and former Major League Baseball scout.
