"This is a book to savor ... Stories such as this are too infrequently encountered. Treasure it." - GRADY HARP, Top 50 Reviewer

Four wise-ass, foul mouth, but lovable thirteen year old boys ... with backgrounds of South Boston Irish, upper class WASP, local townie Wampanoag Indian twins ... unending summers on Cape Cod ... a mysterious long buried portal through time ... a mesmerizing rumored witch ... a resurrected deadly Wampanoag legend thought to be only a fairy tale to keep children close to home ... Hey, what's the worst that could happen?

Ehh ... mayhem, horror, tragedy, romance, laughter, suspense and non-stop thrills. Buckle up for one of the most enjoyable rides of your life and a cast of characters you'll never forget.

Miss that queasy feeling interrupted by sporadic humor? It's time to get it back!

Diminutive evil beings of Wampanoag legend are mistakenly transported to the present day Upper Cape by four thirteen year old boys and a mysterious orb in the ground. The boys and their future adult selves are tasked with dealing with four highly skilled homicidal Pukwudgees, hell-bent on mayhem, and who now have access to any point in time. They must close the Pandora's Box they opened before the unimaginable happens in God knows when, all the while protecting the secret of the orb from inquiring minds at all costs.

Enjoy being embraced in a story that you won't want to let go. GET ITCHIWAN – once you begin, you don't want it to end.

About the Author

Joe and his wife Nancy have lived year round on the Cape since 1984. However, according to local customs, only their daughter Kaylyn can be considered a native Cape Codder.
Joe has engaged in numerous occupations and activities from paper boy, to bag boy, to laborer, to metal fabricator, to bank examiner, to CFO, to COO, to ghost youth sports writer, to entrepreneur, to movie extra, while writing along the way.
His roots were in Marlboro, MA and he’s been replanted in Boston, Washington DC, New York, San Juan, Houston and finally Cape Cod where he expects to remain firmly planted barring any climatic catastrophes … “knock on wood.”
