Ferriel, Phil


Hoosier farm boy Phil Belcher opens his fictitious autobiography with the line, Are you ready to be bored?” and ironically entices us into his life. Phil takes us on a comical coming-of-age journey where he survives the mischief of three older siblings, only to be hurled into the strict confines of Parochial school where his antics entangle him with the hierarchy of the church. An overriding theme of Getting in the Game is Phil’s love of basketball and his desire to compete. What exemplifies his character is how he handles being cut from teams, yet carries his passion for the sport into adulthood. When Phil’s marriage and fatherhood begin to crumble, it drives him into the arms of a forbidden woman. Phil’s dream of getting in the game intensifies when his grandson inherits his drive and ambition for basketball success. Getting in the Game is a mixture of Ghost, Hoosiers, and Fried Green Tomatoes, but maintains its own identity as it runs the gamut of human emotions. Are you ready to see dreams fulfilled? Then start Getting in the Game!Ferriel, Phil is the author of 'Getting in the Game', published 2003 under ISBN 9781592866175 and ISBN 1592866174.
