Meet the Author

Born and raised in Connecticut. Bachelor of Arts Degree in English Literature from the University of Connecticut (UCONN) in 1982. Currently working for the State of Connecticut for the last 27 years. I grew up in Bridgeport and am in no way a gangster or ex-Drug Dealer. However, I have watched numerous friends and relatives lose both their lives and freedom after choosing the "Street Life". This Novel is a fictional account that was derived from my imagination as well as experiences and stories that I have heard through the years. Another influence for this novel comes from the many gangster Movies that have depicted this lifestyle such as "the Godfather", "Scarface" & "Good Fella's." (American Gangser was not yet made when I wrote this book). My goal is to show people the heartache and the stress that comes with the gangster lifestyle.
