Welcome to my split-personality website.   I write for both adults and middle-grade youth, concentrating on non-fiction sports history for adults, with Minor League Baseball history my main emphasis.  For kids, I write youth sports fiction in the vein of Matt Christopher and Alfred Slote, both prolific writers of youth sports stories from the 1950s to 1990s.

Please take a few minute to browse my site. You'll find plenty for both kids and adults, including links to some of my favorite sports history and middle-grade sports fiction. And, don't forget to check out my blogs. "Me and Jerome," among other topics, includes articles published in several North Texas small-town newspapers and on the Texas League page of MiLB.com. My Youth Sports Literature blog covers the latest and oldest in middle-grade sports fiction, the kind many of you parent grew up reading.

If you have any questions or comments, feel free to c
lick the "Contact Kris" button at the top of each page. I promise I'll get back to you!
