About this title

Synopsis:

Book by Wilber, Rick

About the Author:

Rick Wilber is the author of Bone Cold from Tor Books and the younger reader novel The Secret Skater from the University of Tampa Press. He has published more than fifty short stories and more than a thousand nonfiction articles, essays, profiles, and reviews for a wide range of newspapers and magazines in the U.S. and Europe, including Sport magazine, Elysian Fields, The Boston Glove Sunday Magazine, Fantasy & Science Fiction, Asimov's Science Fiction, Spitball, The St. Petersburg Times, The Tampa Tribune, Catholic Digest, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, and many, many more.

A long time college journalism professor, Rick also writes college textbooks on creating and revising fiction and nonfiction, published by Allyn & Bacon, Wadsworth, St. Martin’s Press, NTC, and others. He is head of the magazine option at the University of South Florida in Tampa. Rick is the son of former Major League catcher Del Wilber, who played for the Cardinals, Phillies, and Red Sox in baseball’s golden age of the 1950’s and then scouted, managed, and coached in the game for thirty more years before retiring, so it’s not surprising that baseball often steals its way into his fiction and nonfiction. Rick was a three-sport college scholarship athlete himself— in baseball, football, and basketball — but eventually came to realize, as he warmed the benches in all three sports, that writing offered a more promising future.

Now Rick lives in St. Petersburg Florida with his wife, son, and daughter and is working on a new novel about baseball and relationship while he continues to play the game in an over-forty league, still unwilling to admit that he can’t hit a good curve.
