The Cobb Legacy

The Cobb Legacy

Cagney Nowak is writing a novel around the 1905 shooting death of baseball legend Ty Cobb’s father, William, by his mother a week before Ty was called up by the Detroit Tigers. Although she was acquitted by an all-male jury on the grounds that the incident was accidental, the townspeople of Royston, Georgia, thought otherwise. Gossip had it that Amanda Cobb, at age thirty-three — and twenty years her husband’s junior — was having an affair and that William, having told her he was going out of town on business, returned to catch her with her lover. At her trial, the questions were never raised as to why she had locked her second story window on a hot August night, or why she’d shot twice — surely she knew, after firing the first barrel of her shotgun, at whom she was shooting? A boyhood friend of Ty’s was first on the scene that night, claiming years later that he knew that Amanda had had a lover with her that night, and that he even knew who it was… When Cagney begins to relive the night of the shooting in his dreams, more than a century later and in the guise of Amanda Cobb, he is led to discover his father’s deepest secret.

My first novel, January's Paradigm, was published in 1998. Current Entertainment Monthly in Ann Arbor, Michigan, wrote of January's Paradigm, "(readers) will not be able to put it down."

In 2008 I completed Backstop: A Baseball Love Story in Nine Innings, which is available from Second Wind Publishing and in Kindle format. Backstop was nominated a Michigan Notable Book in 2010, while the Lewis Department of Humanities at the Illinois Institute of Technology adopted it as required reading for one of their spring 2011 courses--Baseball: America's Literary Pastime.

Also in 2008, I finished work on a futuristic piece, Chaotic Theory, a novella that explores the conjecture of how the flap of a butterfly's wings in Brazil might result in a tornado in Texas.

I completed The Cobb Legacy in 2010, a murder mystery romance that spans two centuries written around baseball legend, Ty Cobb.
