Born in Fall River, MA in 1952 I grew up in Somerset, a town just across the Taunton River. I've lived in New Hampshire since March of 2001 when my wife and I decided to give our then 21 month old son a better life in a small town in the Granite State. After the September 11th tragedy I was called back to serve in our armed forces and started writing poetic stories while stationed at Fort Sill, Oklahoma in 2003. Not being able to serve over seas because of my disability, I was honorably discharged in March of 2004. Still, I kept writing and one book led to another. To date I have published a total of six books. Five in what I call my "LESSON IN LIFE" series and my latest book released this year, TRAIL OF THE OLD MAN, Historic and Legendary Tales of the Old Man of the Mountain.
