Author Jude Morgan’s Sporting Story “National Past Time: Kingpin Alley”

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (PRWEB) July 12, 2013 - “National Past Time: Kingpin Alley” (published by iUniverse) is a novel based around life in a bowling alley. Author Jude Morgan conveys key human foundations of living a life based on values, and how important it is not to get carried away by greed and jealousy. Growing up in a bowling alley owned by his parents, Morgan wanted to write a story based on his experience – “an amazing time……. for a boy who loved to bowl.”

The book demonstrates how bowling can bring families and friends together. The book also covers the sensitive topic of parenting, and it is obvious that the author has been greatly inspired by his dad during his lifetime.

“I hope that today’s youth may understand their parents’ perspectives better after reading this book,” he states.

An excerpt from ‘National Past Time’

I've come to believe that dreams are hardly ever entertained and even less often realized. There are snares and traps, naysayers and enviers, obstacles to overcome and disenchantment through which to persist. If you pursue a dream, you give up being a part of the crowd, because dreamers stand out by nature. Success is not guaranteed. And that is enough to deter most people – but not my dad.
