Welcome To sportsSlant (sSl)

I'm Sonya Ewan, an Albuquerque-based freelance writer and interviewer, and sportsSlant is my website highlighting professional and amateur athletes in their challenges, accomplishments, and oddities. I'm always on the prowl for unique sports news and information to share, mainly in my blog (it's more of a biannual column): CHbLog. There's also a reader Q&A for amateur athletes and dabblers who've asked me to delve into my knowledge as an athlete and former fitness instructor to answer training-related questions. And if you find yourself wondering, "When is the [insert major sports event]?" simply click on the Events calendar link. Scroll down the same page to find sportSlant Book Club recommendations and must-see movies. I've also included an abridged portfolio of my published works.
