Meet the Author

Salvatore Girgente has published works in various magazines and newspapers across the United States. He began his martial arts training in 1974 in Bayonne, New Jersey and continued for many years studying Tae Kwon Do and Aikido. Sal's strong desire to protect those who could not protect themselves brought him to a career in law enforcement.
