Author John L. Nunes drew from his nearly 40 years of news reporting, feature writing, and higher education public relations to pen and publish two novels: High Stakes Fantasy–An Alternative Reality Sports Thriller and DreamCatcher Games.
Not surprisingly, the San Diegan’s third novel, scheduled for early fall publication, a newspaper reporter and a university PR practitioner are center stage. Working title: Bullies for You.
Winner of national and local awards for coverage of one of the nation’s deadliest airline disasters, he has more than 1,000 bylines for the L.A. Times, San Diego Union-Tribune, North County Times, Sport Magazine, Elysian Fields Quarterly, San Diego Magazine, Associated Press, and others.
As a reporter, he covered police, courts, politics, sports, entertainment, business, labor, government, education, technology, travel, health care—you name it. We’re talking murder, cult, robbery, con scams, bankruptcies, and political shenanigans.
Also was in-house media relations director for two major San Diego universities and one of the largest community colleges in the nation. Included working with former Supreme Court Chief Justice Warren Burger, Mother Teresa, comedian Bob Hope, and actors Annette Bening and Richard Dreyfuss.
Loves watching baseball, and has taken in games at eight Major League ballparks and at least a dozen minor league parks. Obsessed over fantasy baseball and intrigued with sports gambling trends (see above novels and his blog):
