JA Mattox Releases 'One O'Clock Tee: Or, Mystery in the Rough'

JA Mattox loves mysteries. His father, who played golf regularly for about 50 years with a number of lifelong friends and his thoughts about middle-age love affairs inspired Mattox to write the novel, "One O'Clock Tee: Or, Mystery in the Rough" (published by AuthorHouse).

The book is about people, including some old codgers who have survived through thick and thin for lots of years. They have made this possible primarily by their friendship on a golf course, by their respect for one another and in large measure, by their personal grit.

The story involves an ex-professional golfer whose wife died from cancer, leaving him with a little girl who has grown up and now faces problems of her own. It features one of the wealthiest women in the country, a romance or two, an unsolved old murder case, a crucial golf match and some zany antics in small-town Middle America.

"I think most people are probably still searching for goals in their own lives when they reach middle age. Are they going to amount to something after all or just muddle through their remaining years? Mattox asks. "My characters are doing significant things. I also hope that through this novel, I have provided some amusing situations and a few, good laughs. I think people should realize that there is life after 40."
