(2010)
What A Difference A Decade Makes
A novel by

 
It was a bike ride that forever changed Captain Marshall Allen's life. Seven years later, a very similar bike ride would do the same for magazine editor Alexandra Allred. While many believed it was destiny that Alex would take a bike route that would lead her to tell Marshall's extraordinary story, it soon became clear that Marshall was also meant to help Alex. Marshall was a pioneer in the fire department, becoming the first black fire fighter in Salt Lake County. Alex was a pioneer in the sports world, becoming the first U.S. women's bobsled champion. But where Marshall was from very humble beginnings, once abused in the foster care system, Alex was the daughter of a U.S. Diplomat. They were worlds apart. Neither had any idea how much trouble was brewing ...
This is the story of an unlikely friendship between a quadriplegic fire fighter and a former national athlete turned writer and how they changed local and national policies, took on the good 'ol boy network and the "Big Boys" at the US Capitol. Swingman: What a Difference A Decade Makes is a fast-paced, laugh-out-loud book that chronicles the last ten years of their lives, their faith (or once lack thereof) and their own personal fires. If you believe in miracles, if you believe you can fight city hall, if you believe in overcoming insurmountable obstacles, this is the book for you! Prepare to be inspired by the indomitable spirit of both Captain Marshall Allen and his friend Alexandra Allred.
