|I'm a freelance writer and editor, former newspaper reporter and the author of Keeping the Faith: In the trenches with college football's worst team. On February 23, 2016, Flatiron Books will publish my book about the history of the jump shot: Rise and Fire: The Origins, Science, and Evolution of the Jump Shot--And How It Transformed Basketball Forever. I'm obsessed with the Los Angeles Lakers, sports from the 1980s and Super Tecmo Bowl. I'm a Minnesota native and am married to a South African, but I now live in Manhattan.
