Keith O'Brien is a former reporter for the Boston Globe and now a New Orleans-based writer. Outside Shot is his first book.
O'Brien spent a almost year in Scott County researching the book, which follows four seniors and their coach as they struggle with disgruntled fans, demanding parents, and the scrutiny of college basketball scouts. A reviewer from the New York Times calls the book "a reporting tour de force and an utterly gripping account."
