A raunchy, fictitious novel based on laughable true-life accounts, It's a Ball follows a team of eight misfit tennis players during the Austin League championship season and exposes the real country club tennis culture.  Recreational tennis may sound like fun, but as they soon learn, the competition is a Molotov cocktail shaken with vodka and estrogen. Their underdog team must navigate the perils of contentious rivalries, cheating opponents, scandalous and backbiting rumors, and illegal shenanigans in a quest to become Queens of the Court.  Along the way, they find that tennis is not all about balls, racquets, and team uniforms, but the special bonds between women. Campy and brash, It's a Ball is a story about unlikely victories on and off the tennis court.

About the Author:

Much to the amazement of the literary world and the public little is known about the elusive author, J. Morgan McGrady. Only her tennis teammates at Cedarway Country Club and a few folks at the local shooting range claim to know the eccentric woman.  At the age of five, McGrady was abandoned at a rundown trailer park near the rural town of Bug Tussle, Texas. She was raised by an elderly woman, Zig-Zag, the owner of a feed store off I-34. As an accomplished author and satirist, McGrady fostered her writing skills at a young age by first penning humorous stories and unsubstantiated rumors on bathroom doors at truck stops and honkytonks.  Later she was accepted, albeit blackmailing the dean of admissions, to Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, Texas. It's a Ball is J. Morgan McGrady s debut novel, however she is completing two more humorous books about her world travels and ranch life in the Texas Hill Country. Currently, J. Morgan and her husband are living in Austin, Texas with their blind kangaroo, Sheila and dachshund, Fred. Find out more at: jmorganmcgrady.com

Review:

Attention all tennis bitches: prepare to meet your match. It's a Ball kicks asphalt! A gritty, hilarious, naughty novel that serves-up big laughs. --Sharon Crump, Internet Columnist Rumor-Has-It.net

Bawdy and irreverent, J. Morgan McGrady s debut book about country club tennis is outrageously funny. I laughed so hard that I blew out an ovary! A must-read for any recreational tennis player. --Wendy Stevens, Head Tennis Pro Cedarway Country Club

Finally, someone has exposed the dirty underworld about the country club occult. J. Morgan McGrady is one ballsy gal. This laugh-out-loud humorous novel made me pee my pants! --Jane Simpson, Proprietor The Bottleneck
