Loryn Kramer Staley unfolds the story of an ambitious swim coach pursuing his dream to coach an elite swim team in her new book, “Thunder’s Glory” (published by Archway Publishing), based on a true story.

Cory Horton wants the chance to coach a second Olympic hopeful, so he sets his plan in motion by forming a new team, Memphis Thunder. He faces many obstacles and struggles, especially finding a pool for practice, but soon sets out to find a rising star he can send to the Olympics.

Through all of the challenges and sacrifices, Horton creates a legacy greater than he could have ever imagined.

An excerpt from “Thunder’s Glory”:
The opening of the Compton Aquatic Center brought much relief to Cory and his Thunder family. Bouncing from pool to pool had taken its toll, and now, having a place to call home, he was able to put aside real estate searches and give his attention to what he loved most – coaching his team.
