My first novel Zivo was given a favorable review from Dan’s papers and the Suffolk Times both newspapers in Long Island New York. In Marines and Renegades, my second novel, I give a narrative voice to the Marines I knew and had great admiration for throughout my three years of service. I have studied the mind set of the Japanese soldier of that era and given them their due in the novel. Marines and Renegades is a summation of my experiences while stationed on Guam after WW2. Marines and Renegades received favorable reviews from the Leatherneck Magazine (the quintessential Marine periodical).
My third book, My Corps: Short Stories and Re-flections is completed. It is an anthology that is dedicated to the men of C Company Twenty Third Marines Fourth Marines Division of WW 2. It received the silver medal from Military Writers society of America in the Short stories category.
My fourth contribution, 1279, is a number of short stories of our life on Long Island New York in the early forties.
Number five is Confessions of a Milkman. For twenty five years I drove a milk truck in New York. For those years living in a world devoid of morals holding to ingrained American ethics became a constant chore.
I am a father and grandfather, and I have been married for sixty years. I drove a milk truck (wholesale) for twenty years in New York City. After retiring, I started a jewelry business serving the tourist areas along the East Coast from Maine to Key West. I have been writing for about thirty years; it is just recently that I decided to bring my work into the public eye. My life has been interesting and my characters have been drawn from friends and enemies alike. I write under the premise that life is an adventure not only for the celebrated, but for each and every one of us. Living in New York has given me an adrenal high all these years and fused a craving for living that borders on addiction.
