About The Author

I was born in 1949 in Brockton, MA to a middle-class Italian family. A twin brother of mine died six months after our birth and I always wonder what if he'd lived? - I was blessed later with other siblings, though. Graduated high school in '67 and went into the Navy, a very sobering experience. Always loved reading and literature, though. Used the GI Bill later to get my BA in Lit and Psychology. Worked in Boston and lived there, too. Later on, after a traumatic layoff, went through some hard years and then was hired by a courthouse, so that I became a State Employee. I'll always be eternally grateful for that. Also got an MA from Harvard in Lit and Psychology. Also later joined Mensa and later Intertel. Always loved writing poetry and later books. I love Paranormal. I treasure my cats, my friends, my family, and all my nieces and nephews and, now, great-nephews and nieces whom I am proud to say I spoil rotten My beliefs and probing of the Paranormal enabled me to write this book. At home, I play with the cats, write, and then curl up with a good book.
