About the Author

When Joel Momberg isn't pounding out a mean New Orleans flavored boogie-woogie on the nearest piano, he's setting the tone as Chief Executive Officer for the University of South Florida Foundation. But Momberg's hands have done far more than shape the historic direction of the recently completed billion-dollar USF Unstoppable Campaign, or raising money and the profile of All Children's Hospital into a community treasure during his 30 years in executive leadership positions - helping create iconic events such as the Children's Miracle Network Telethon, the Taste of Pinellas and Regional Emmy-winning children's music. They have been busy working the keyboard of his trusty laptop to produce his second novel, Sammy: A Novel, a lively and unique mystery set in his native New Orleans. It follows his 2013 debut novel Home Movies, a whodunit that unfolds on the familiar territory of St. Pete Beach. Momberg resides in St. Petersburg with wife Debbie, and has three children - Nicole, Alissa, and Josh - and three grandchildren (two more are on the way!). Both books draw from Momberg's rich life experience with engaging plot lines and characters from his fertile imagination.
