It might take some effort to Wade through this inexperienced author’s first book.
Before he was general manager of the Phillies and Astros, Ed Wade earned a journalism degree at Temple University. So maybe it isn’t surprising that, when he found himself with some time on his hands, he decided to write a book.
What might be unexpected, though, was the subject matter. It wasn’t about baseball. The novel, self-published on Kindle, is a page-turning mystery involving Navy SEALS, skydiving and geopolitics….
There are autobiographical aspects to the book. “Some of it is. Some of it is background experience,” Wade said. “I did grow up in a small town in Northeastern Pennsylvania [where the story is set]. It was an area that was big on coal mining and railroads at one time and has struggled, as a lot of places in the Northeast have and a result of things changing. So some of it is. Obviously, more recently, the sky diving. There are different parts that are experiences I’ve lived through.”
