About this Author
Carl Deuker is widely considered a "premier author of provocative YA sports novels" including Gym Candy, named a Texas Lone Star title, and Runner, a Booklist Top 10 Sports Book. His characters are high school athletes with differing abilities, ambitions, and psychological baggage, but their stories all unfold within the sports that they choose to play. Far from being just a hinge upon which to hang a plot, sports in Deuker's novels serve as a central metaphor for the complicated process of growing up. He lives in Seattle, WA, with his wife and daughter. www.membersauthorsguild.net/carldeuker
