Confessions of a Beantown Sports Junkie

By Keith Guernsey

A fun, light-hearted trip down memory lane. My experiences as a player, coach and avid fan of all Boston sports.

How does this book “tie” to the previous book listing?

The previously featured book is about a card game. Professional sports is composed of many individual games.

About the Author

Mr. Keith D. Guernsey is retired after a forty year career in sales and sales management with several fortune 500 companies. He currently lives on Lake Lanier with his wife Susan and four-footed son Harley.

Mr Guernsey spent a good portion of his youth playing sports, active in both football and hockey. In 1995 Keith was diagnosed with a life-threatening brain tumor (called an Acoustic Neuroma) and he underwent a ten hour operation at the world-renowned Brigham and Women’s hospital where it was successfully removed.  While recovering, he met and married Susan. Together they faced his next challenge. In 1997 his neuroma returned. He was to undergo yet another, more complex, operation which resulted in a complete cure, however side effects of this second more invasive procedure caused prolonged inactivity and led to severe weight gain of over 100 lbs.

Today, Mr. Guernsey is very proud of the fact that he has been able to overcome his physical challenges, losing over one hundred and thirty five pounds, and has found the time to write two successful books (“Confessions of a Beantown Sports Junkie and “Fathers and Sons-Sports and Life”). He now enjoys a more active and rewarding lifestyle at age sixty five than at he did at twenty five!

His current interests include senior softball, he has recently been elected to the Board of Directors of ITN Lanier, he volunteers as a delivery driver for Meals-On-Wheels and works as a counselor for veterans who are looking to re-enter the work force.

(Without Starting War)

By Earl Chinnici

Looking for a family-friendly card game that will provide hours of entertainment without quarrels or pouting?

This probably isn’t for you!

Actually, the card game called stick your neighbor can provide hours of fun with little to no pouting or fighting so long as all the players understand and agree upon the rules before playing.

That’s where this little book delivers.

Though the rules set forth in this book are by no means “official,” they should help create an environment free of bloodied noses or crumbled cards and pave the way to bliss even in the most dysfunctional of families.

(Disclaimers: Previous statements not based on reality. Results may vary.For entertainment purposes only.Use at your own risk.)

The American Civil War is the setting of the previous book, The Candle Star by Michelle Isenhoff. The author of HOW TO: Stick Your Neighbor (Without Starting War) hopes to help prevent a repeat of this time in history.

Maybe You Should Move Those Away From You

I’m Earl Chinnici and I’d like to welcome you to Special Novel Ties, a site where each book listing is cunningly “tied” to the one listed previously by a common, albeit often thin, thread. Each new listing will reveal this connection. Perhaps you’ll find your next “favorite author” in this way. If this manner of serendipity isn’t your cup of tea, you may also choose to browse by tag (a.k.a. keyword). Each book’s primary genre is represented by one tag. Authors are asked to provide nine additional keywords to help encourage serendipities.

SpecialNovelTies.com will occasionally include a book that is non-fiction, though this site is primarily focused on what is commonly referred to as “clean fiction” to stay true to its name “Special Novel Ties.” And, since every great journey must first begin and since I’m still writing my first fictitious masterpiece, I hereby launch this website with this post about my first book, a true story about the sunset of my tobacco cigarette addiction and the dawn of my career as an author.

~~~ Maybe You Should Move Those Away From You ~~~

At forty years of age, I was broke. So broke I couldn’t even afford a birthday gift for my dear friend, Cathy. I was also severely addicted to tobacco cigarettes. My story begins when Cathy turned my makeshift present for her into a gift of life for me. If you have ever said, “I wish I could quit smoking” or “I want to cut back on cigarettes,” this is the book for you. Although my personal journey, it contains insights and encouragement to help you break away from your own addiction.
