Alison Gordon

Five years on the baseball beat for the Toronto Star led ALISON GORDON to a National Newspaper Award Citation of Merit and her first book, Foul Balls. Her first crime novel, The Dead Pull Hitter, was short-listed for both the Stephen Leacock Award for Humour and the City of Toronto Book Award in 1988, and introduced the world to Kate Henry, an irreverent baseball writer who appeared again in Safe At Home, Night Game, Striking Out, and Prairie Hardball (M&S). Gordon is the granddaughter of Winnipeg’s own Ralph Connor, and a guest of honor at “Exhibiting Writers” at the Ralph Connor House. She lives in Toronto ON.
