An awesome connection with my new novel.
When I was at PNC Park the other night, I saw this and HAD to take a photo:
When I was writing my latest novel, The Reach of the Banyan Tree, I decided to use Wagner as a means of bringing part of the story together. The protagonist’s great grandfather’s favorite player was Wagner and he passed on his love for him to his son, Charles Regal Carson, who always signed his name as ‘The Flying Dutchman’.
This simple fact is enough to steer the story in a new direction when the protagonist sees his grandfather’s unique signature in a cave in northern Vietnam.
A story that has a small important tie to one of the greatest ballplayers of all time.
