Updated: Jun 25, 2020

John Barnes is the first of several clients The Brielle Agency has had the pleasure of working with through its partnership with The Unapologetic Voice House! We are really excited to announce him, and subsequent authors we've worked with over the last 5 months. John is a speaker, trainer, coach, and golfer from Denver, Co. and coaches athletes, business leaders, artists, and students to reach new heights in their performances. His novel, 18: A Novel of Golf and Life, is inspired by the many life stories he has witnessed in his time as a coach and mentor.

'18 is scheduled for release in Spring 2020!

We are honored and thrilled to have worked with John to get his book edited for publication. Over a period of 2 months, he worked together with our editor, N. Amma Twum-Baah as they redid chapters, restructured paragraphs and sentences, and, finally proofread for grammar, punctuation, and spelling. We can personally attest to the passion with which John believes in and tells his stories, and that passion is manifested within the pages of this attention-grabbing novel.

18: A Novel of Golf and Life

Craig Cantwell is well known as a journeyman millionaire and 'the best professional golfer who has not won a major.' His successful life as a tour pro is shattered when he is suspended from the PGA Tour.

Without a place to compete and with a personal life tangled with drama, Craig has to find his way back to a life he knows. His fight is not with the scions of the tour, the public, or the scores of great golfers who would be his opponents. He has to prevail over the toughest of adversaries - himself.

18: A Novel of Golf and Life beautifully tells the story of Cantwell and those in his life: Rachelle Keys, the mother of Craig's daughter and a heroic FBI Agent; Kelly Keys, the new 'IT' girl of golf; Thomas Kincaid, agent, and lawyer to the rich and scandalous; And Seth Reede, the personal development guru with a past more shocking than any fallen hero. Far more involved than just a tale of athletic triumph,18: A Novel of Golf and Life is a story of forgiveness, truth, courage, and redemption.
