At this year’s Philadelphia Writers’ Conference, an author from New Jersey will be attending with some nice momentum. Jim Hart, a licensed counselor who had a book published recently, has been speaking at churches each month, delivering spiritual messages to congregations. After each service, church members line up to meet him and to get an autographed copy of his book. Its focus? Helping men become better husbands, with a clever sports theme to intrigue potential readers. We caught up with Jim and spoke with him about his inspiration for the book, the motivation behind it, and why sports professionals are endorsing his message.

Enjoy.
