Meet the Author

I grew up in Queens,New York and my motivation to write came from my wish to help my grandchildren pay for their college education. So far I've completed 15 books and 9 short stories including my popular 'ENGINE 24 FIRE STORIES' trilogy and I've just finished the 5th installment in the 'TIME PORTAL' series as well as LAFITTE'S TREASURE which is presently being edited.

I'm currently working on 'THE STARLIGHT CLUB 5 which I shelved about a year ago, When that book is finished I will write a sequel to my western 'THE ADVENTURES OF THE LONE JACK KID', titled 'THE RETURN OF THE LONE JACK KID'.

This is a must read for anyone who has wondered what it is like to be a professional firefighter. Mr. Corso relates incidents from his career as a member of the FDNY in an easy and very readable style. He focuses on the perils and rewards of this very hazardous work, but he also relates humorous happenings and historical information. My favorite of the latter was his mentioning the fire horses and including an article written about them. I envy him for the wonderful friendships forged in those fires and I too mourn the loss of the outstanding men who rushed in as everyone else fled. I have always wondered how anyone can do that job, and now I know these men have not only a special kind of courage, but a will stronger than the axes they wield, and a determination greater than the worst conflagration. Thank you Mr. Corso.
