REVIEW COMMENTS:

“Steve Stinson has tucked ‘Bullet’’ Bill Dudley’s incomparable life into these page as skillfully as the book’s triple-threat hero once carried, passed and kicked a football. You might just feel like doing an end zone dance before this only-in-America life is through. (Brian O’Neill, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette columnist and author of “The Paris of Appalachia”)

“Having interviewed Bill Dudley late in his life on his selection as the No. 1 pick in the NFL Draft, I was struck by how much more there was to his story. Frankly, I wish I had known him better and Steve Stinson has made that possible in his book, ‘Bullet’ Bill Dudley. In a myriad of journalistic-related pursuits, Steve has always been a consummate story-teller and his connections to the Dudley family made him the perfect candidate for this project. (Doug Doughty, sports reporter for the Roanoke Times).”

AUTHOR PROFILE: Steve Stinson is a commercial artist and painter and the author of two books for adults and five books for children. His first book for adults, “What Would Mary Ann Do?” was co-written with Dawn Wells, who played Mary Ann in the long running television series, “Gilligan’s Island.”
