I used to get made fun of in the minor leagues. I'd be 0 for 2, and then in my last at-bat I'd hit a chopper that wouldn't even reach the shortstop, and I'd get a hit out of it. The guys would be all over me, but a hit's a hit. I'll take 3,000 of 'em.

'Blind Curve,' the book I'm working on now, sprang from a crazy incident that happened to me last year while on my book tour.

Except in my story, the hero doesn't get off as easily as I did.
