We are very proud to introduce Matt McCoy to the world. Our first new author to the Central Avenue imprint in a while, Matt has penned a book which is loosely based on his time spent in minor and professional hockey. While hockey is the central theme, the story is really about a boy and man growing up and playing the cards that life has dealt him. Humorous and emotional with a unique voice, The Kid Who Missed The Bus is getting rave reviews from well known sports and hockey folks. Pick it up in both print and digital formats, it’s sure to tickle your funny bone and touch your heart.
Matt McCoy started playing ice hockey at the age of 7 and left home at 15 to pursue a professional hockey career. After playing in the juniors in Canada, he then quit to get his BA. When the desire for hockey again arose, he donned his skates and played professional hockey overseas for three years. Matt is now retired and happily married with two children, living in British Columbia.
