International author, Richard D Bonte is pleased to announce his book, The Tennis Bubble. Readers are calling it entertaining, funny and instructive!
Read this book before you choose a tennis program for your youngster!
This is the story of a typical student-athlete and that of the many tennis families who make the annual trek from wherever in the world they stem from to the Nick Bollettieri Tennis Academy in Bradenton, Florida. This is not the story of an already known quantity—a Roger Federer, Pete Sampras, Bjorn Borg or Andre Agassi—this is the story of an ordinary budding tennis hopeful and her very supportive family who has always assigned too much importance to tennis. This is the story of an adolescent girl with all the tools to become a first-class professional tennis player. This is the story of devastating serves, rifle-crack forehands, pin-point passing shots and Andre Agassi–like angles that pull the opponent right off the court; of serenity and courage in the face of cheating and frustration. In brief, this is a very normal story for all hopefuls out there—both players and their families—and an idea of what it takes from all concerned to try and build a champion.

This fast-paced thriller is a page turner which savages ambulance chasing in all its forms, and particularly in the United States. Terry’s Upside can be described as an insider trading family drama.
When Rod Lafleur is visited one day by a distant second cousin, Teresa Roberts, he doesn’t know what to think. For one thing, he hardly knows Terry, having met her only once and talked to her a couple of times on the telephone. For another, Terry has always ranted on about hair-brained schemes and pots of gold, about this or that one being greedy or not getting their fair share of the family pie: a privately-held, well-known plastic toy company in the Mid-West. Sure, Rod and his extended family have inherited twenty thousand gift shares of the Allen Company. But they have no decision-making power, and the shares are worth nothing on the open market. Terry has a new spin and the Lafleurs are willing listeners until they find out that the option contract she has is not what they thought it would be nor is Terry exactly who she claims to be.
Will Rod be able to save his family from the clutches of the evil Terry and his own greedy sister-in-law?
