The Marathoner's Daughter

I'm attempting to publish a novel I wrote called The Marathoner's Daughter. Read all about my progress and attempts at publication on my website and writing blog.

The Marathoner's Daughter
Inspirational Women's Fiction
(Note: Original title SPRINTER appears on the award)

Riley Sprinter's world shatters when her mother is murdered at the 1986 Athens Marathon. Can she ever find a way to heal, or will her professional running dreams remain out of reach?


I've received two full manuscript requests, including an offer of representation from an agent. Unfortunately, it didn't work out. Getting ready to query agents and publishers again after some edits.

A Race. A Murder. A Shattered Olympic Dream.

Riley Sprinter's mother was murdered at the 1986 Athens Marathon. Ever since that event, Riley has suffered from PTSD. She no longer pursues a professional running career, but mandatory counseling may be what she needs to revive her dreams of following in her mother's footsteps.

Meeting the First Woman to Run Boston

I met Kathrine Switzer at the 2010 Women's Half Marathon race expo at the Vinoy in St. Petersburg. I had the privilege of seeing her again in 2011. What amazing encounters! I recommend her books and I recommend the documentary, Spirit of the Marathon, with appearances by famous runners and the story of how Kathrine Switzer changed women's running by entering the all-male Boston Marathon in 1967.
