About this author

Born and raised to a middle class family. I learned family values at a young age. I was always taught to be responsible for my own actions.
Leap ahead 60 years. After over 30 years in the Financial Services Industry, working with clients from all walks of life. My frustration with the states of affairs in America,, shared by many people I speak with, reached a head, so I wrote a book. The book is composed of essays dealing with the changes in America. I have not been happy with some of the changes.
I believe that you will either share many of my views or reject them. Either way you'll find my book entertaining and an easy read. I hope you enjoy it.

America Changes (Literature & Fiction)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:30PM
Description: Remember John F. Kennedy saying, “And so, my fellow Americans: Ask not what your country can do for you – ask what you can do for your country.” President Kennedy’s intent has clearly been forgotten. Many do not want to “do for their country”- they expect the “country to do for them.”
