"Incredible," said Johnnie. His eyes were wide. Filled with awe for Mickey's skills and expectation with how much he could earn from it.
Mickey didn't hear his appreciative manager. He didn't see the small tear that had formed in his kid sister's admiring eye. His gaze remained on Jules. She brushed her hair back on to her shoulders before resting her slender hands on her hips. Her mouth was wide open, breathing in her excitement for what she had just seen. Then her eyes revealed there was more to her feelings than that of an adoring fan. Her gaze began to fill with a stirring hunger. Fate was beginning to move into Mickey's life like an evening moon tide.

To my delight, Hollywood produced a sequel to The Hustler a quarter of a century later - The Colour of Money. I remember waiting for its release to see how it compared with Paul Newman's earlier classic. I wasn't disappointed. Another quarter of a century on, I pay homage to these two classic sports movies with the release of my new novel - CUBEBALL - in 2015.

The game of snooker, pool and billiards loomed large in my life as a young boy growing up in Melbourne. I remember watching The Hustler as a young teenager and idolising the two main characters, Jackie Gleeson and Paul Newman as they battled for supremacy of the pool hall. My new novel - CUBEBALL - pays homage to the sport.
