SLAMMIN’ takes place in a different 2011. Fifty-three year-old tennis pro and family man, Wally Wilson is happily teaching Silicon Valley’s millionaires and billionaires at the double-wide estate of his temptress and benefactor, 17 year-old Ashley Margincall. But when Wally’s serve speed spikes and unidentified government agents appear, he begins a pro tennis odyssey that might lead him to the U.S. Open or the twisted nexus of a Grand Slam conspiracy. Strangely blessed, but always behind the curve, Wally realizes he’s been given all the power, but none of the control.
Marcus Paul Cootsona is the author of the bestselling tennis instructional book, Occam's Racquet – 12 Simple Steps to Smarter Tennis and the critically-praised comic tennis novels, Slammin' and Rubber Match.
A tennis professional and lapsed playwright, Marcus lives with his wife and a sublime, ridiculous dog in Northern California.
Marcus Cootsona hits a clean winner with Slammin’.

Slammin’ has the sort of wacky charm that keeps a reader
following Wally’s excellent adventure as the plot, like the pro circuit, curves
around like a snake eating its own tail.
