“Hard to Heart: How Boxer Tim Bradley Won Championships & Respect” author Bill Dwyre talks about Bradley in this video. Bradley is the first subject published by Back Story Publishing and his story is focused on middle-grade readers. Dwyre founded Back Story Publishing because he wanted to do something to bring young people and reading closer together. “Too many kids spend way too much time looking at screens of all sizes and types, and playing games where one side tries to blow the other side away. How does that help them mature?” He considered several options, but came back to the unifying power of sports and the inspiration found in the stories of athletes who made themselves a success regardless of where they started. Hence his choice of Tim Bradley, Jr. as his first representative subject.
