Derek Jeter & Paul Mantell Co-Write a Middle Grade Novel

“His inspirational children’s novel, The Contract, is set to go on sale Tuesday, the first title off the presses of his new company, Jeter Publishing, an imprint of Simon & Schuster…Jeter’s novel really doesn’t stray far from his real-life storyline: his fictional mother and father are a biracial couple, one a social worker, the other an accountant, just like those of the superstar. And both Jeters have a little sister named Sharlee. The fictional Derek Jeter boldly states in a school essay titled ‘My Dreams for the Future’ that he will play short for the Yankees.” (The New York Daily News)
