i never intended to turn my random frames of roller derby into a book. however, one evening a friend of mine www.matteichphoto.com sent me an email and mentioned that he'd love to see a book come out of all this.
previously, my wife and derby extraordinaire, sweet n. lowdown, of the dominion derby girls - www.varollergirls.com had suggested the same idea. she's a solid editor and has a tough eye but i didn't really pay attention to her words. she’s a fan of my work so i wrote it off until matt rekindled the idea.
i always wanted to publish a book. originally i wanted to publish a novel, but then i realized i wasn't so good with the pen. later in life i found a camera or it found me. now, i think i have a second chance at realizing "the dream."
