Bill Reynolds is an award-winning sports columnist for the Providence Journal-Bulletin. He has written eight books, including Fall River Dreams and Rise of a Dynasty, in addition to co-authoring three more. Cousy, Reynolds’s best-selling work about the Boston Celtics’ iconic point guard, was called an “insightful, astute biography” by Sports Illustrated. His book with Rick Pitino, Success is a Choice, was featured on the New York Times bestseller list for several weeks.

In 1994 Reynolds authored Fall River Dreams, a book featuring his journey with the Durfee High School basketball team and one of its players, Chris Herren, as they began their annual drive towards a State Championship. Fall River Dreams is a story of one team’s quest for glory in a basketball town where the game of basketball was everything. Basketball Junkie brings Bill Reynolds and Chris Herren back to the court as they pick up the journey after Fall River Dreams and describe in a gripping, provocative account one athlete’s journey from high school glory to hell and back.
