About the Book
Trying to prosper in the regular working world but left feeling empty, a visually impaired young man in his twenties finds himself moonlighting as a professional wrestler.
He eventually finds himself struggling during the day with the lack of progress in his work life and struggling at night with repeated nightmares, where crazed fans try to harm him. After all, he is the “bad guy” or the heel. One fan in particular is an angry former girlfriend. Heel Turn follows his journey toward hopefulness and financial stability through radio, newspaper work, professional wrestling, lovers, ex-lovers, and a group of colorful friends…and enemies.
