Defenseman: A Hockey Player's Story
"This isn't a story about putting the puck in the net, although that is part of it, but of understanding your brothers on the ice and your brother in real life. But when your brother in real life has a mental illness, it brings an entirely new look to the picture." Steve Tomassini is a gifted, All-American athlete with a promising future in hockey and the smarts to run his own small business. As one of the most talented defensemen to play for Boston University, Steve is known for an unfailing drive and determination that continue to make him a success. His brother, Tony, is a fiction writer and business graduate who has been in and out of mental institutions since the age of 22. Not willing to give up the fight, Tony is determined to try and get his life back, and Steve is the only one that can help him do it. A winning story of brotherhood, courage and team spirit, Defenseman shows how the bonds of true friendship are forged. Michael J. Maloni is the author of two published novels, Defenseman and Shortstop: Where Grace and Power Collide! He is a graduate of Boston University, after attending Northeastern University and Keene State College. He has been blessed with talent and would like to thank his fans! They should be on the lookout for his novel about college football. http: //sbpra.com/MichaelJMaloni
