About this author

I have always been a storyteller. I wanted to be able to write my stories as well as I could tell them. I studied writing in my spare time for many years since I was still working at my day job in commercial real estate. I self-published my first book FIRST LOVE LAST DANCE which is a memoir about my mother, Elise. She fell in love for the first time at 19. Peter was his name. She became engaged to him at 21 but didn't marry him until she was 75. This story has caught media attention from NBC and CNN. See videos on my website www.firstlovelastdance.com."

One plus one does equal two and if it weren't for the writing I definitely would have been tempted with that number.

This is such a beat down character with bad taste in men, and really jacking up the martyr role. OMG. She's raising her brilliant kid,...more

Dear Reader,

As usual with Wally Lamb, this was a solid and really enjoyable book. Not unexpected, but it had been QUITE some time since I'd read one of his novels. (I think maybe 5 or 6 years? I guess since his last novel came out...... " Read more of this review »

Lots of bleak history about one of our darkest periods in this country: slavery.

Well written, reads more diary than anything else but compelling and sad. He could have made the beatings more graphic but chose to be economical when he described them....more

Quentin R. Bufogle
“As with most things, my approach to writing has been entirely ass-backwards. I first had to become everything but a writer -- exhaust all possibilities. I had to come to it on my knees. Only when there was truly nothing left, was I able to become a writer.”
