About this title


A romantic novel intertwined with a sports story that bridges a long lost past with the present. A wealthy man named Jarvis Whelan falls in love with his sexy and beautiful secretary, Lois, and wants to relive his past after a trip back to his PA small town roots. This fictitious tale was created from a single invitation mailed to his office in LA thus setting the stage for a courtship of sophisticated love with an added drama of high school sports caught in real life issues of adolescent sex, drugs and rock-n-roll. Also introduced are the struggles of two underprivileged teenage boys who faced the hardship of economics and hometown politics. But, these two best friends from the other side of the tracks living in government aided project housing prove that hard work makes it possible to tackle all sorts of daily problems. They must also compete against a football system that employs favoritism at the high school level. Added in this saga is the element of a close knit relationship between their moms and their peers that mesh together in making a truly remarkable senior year of dope, dates, and delinquent behavior. But, a true test of manhood in the form of athletic competition in and off the field combines with their spiritual change and together something special is about to take place, thanks to lucky fate ----- named Jarvis.

About the Author:

The author, David R. Whelan, is a 53 year-old self-employed landscaper and house painter. He graduated from the University of Pittsburgh in 1976 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology. He has been married to his high school sweetheart, Lois, for 23 years and they dated for nearly 12 years before marriage. They have two children in college, a son, Jess, and a daughter, Katie. Jess is a mathematics education major and Katie is in the Special Education field. Although this is David's first script, he feels his best credentials being a first time writer are based on being born into a family of 14 brothers and sisters, and being blessed with amazing parents now since deceased. Needless to say, he has been exposed to the best and the worst and everything in between in understanding exactly the struggles of what life brings in making a good honest heart in a person. For these reasons, he has taken the time in his life to write not only some of his personal experiences from his past but also what he sees is occurring to the present date in regards to the mockery of sports across our country's high schools. Therefore, he has dedicated this script to all sports, to everyone ever affected in the wrong way because of unfair politics that denied their special time in life.
