Welcome To SportsSlant (sSl)

A big shout-out to everybody! I'm Sonya Ewan, an Albuquerque-based freelance writer and interviewer. I recently completed a collection of personal essays, so I'm in the throes of querying agents, as well.

For your entertainment, this site highlights professional and amateur athletes in their challenges, accomplishments, victories, and oddities. I aim to indulge or tease out enthusiasm for the discovery of a range of sports dynamics in full-fledged and dabbling fanatics alike. I'm always on the prowl for unique sports news and information to share.

There's a blog (it's more of a biannual column), CHbLog, for fans of outdoor sports - primarily cycling - with a tasteful blend of other sports news mixed in. There's also an abridged portfolio of my published works. Check out the reader Q&A for amateur athletes and wannabes (go for it!) who've asked me to delve into my knowledge as an athlete and former fitness instructor to answer training-related questions. And if you ever find yourself wondering, "When is the [insert major sports event]?" simply click on the handy Events calendar link. If you scroll down that page, you'll find SportSlant Book Club recommendations and must-see movies.

Roll on, stay solid, go play, have fun, and thrive! sonya@sportsSlant.com
