Sports & Fiction Author Rick Ferguson has joined the Spring 2014 JUZDIZRTS Author Event!
Rick Ferguson, 55, is a Bradford resident and has been a Leaf fan for as long as he can remember. The former high-school hockey goalie became intrigued about the team’s inability to capture the Stanley Cup since 1967. It compelled him to consider the possibility the team was “cursed,” and that led him to dream up the idea behind The Ghosts in Maple Leaf Gardens. Rick is a member of the Bradford Writers Group.
This fictional telling reveals the reason for the team’s long drought, and how Ron Bailey, the Leafs’ young director of player personnel, accidentally uncovers a ‘curse’ that has been placed on the team. Can the curse be lifted? Before he can find the answer to that question, Ron Bailey must investigate how the curse involves a former player – Dale McCaine.
“I am thrilled to have the opportunity to present my work at an event like JUZDIZRTS. This is a great forum for local artists to showcase their talents, and have a fabulous cup of coffee at the same time.”
