Husband and father, voracious reader, and entrepreneur, Vernon finally found the courage to put soul to paper. Slow Boat to Purgatory is his first novel.

He lives with his wife and children on the coast of Maine and in the panhandle of Florida. Occasionally, when the need arises, he travels to Venice to visit an old friend...a very old friend.
