This true-to-life story takes place in the great state of New Jersey… specifically in the little-known town of Firewood, where nearly half of the residents happen to be of Italian descent.

It begins on a quiet spring afternoon in a backyard where two brothers are pitching a not-so-innocent game of horseshoes. A half-mile away, a widow and her adult son are about to sit down in their kitchen for a traditional Sunday dinner. Unbeknownst to any of the above, across town, a garage and its owner are engulfed in flames. These three conflicting scenes of hilarity, humanity and hysteria set into play this “it-could-happen-to-you” lighthearted comedy.

Our tale's protagonist, Theresa (Tee) Rosetti manages her family, which includes her husband, Frank, and their teenage daughter, Joanna, and their modest two-story house. The chore of getting the garage rebuilt lands on her petite but able shoulders. Before she can turn around, her world is invaded by a gathering of ‘problem solvers.’

Along the way, this farce gathers a cluster of characters. Some are lovable, others laughable but each plays a role in the journey toward the construction of a new garage for the Rosetti's.

About the Author

Stan Peters is a native New Yorker. Born at a time when NYC newsstands carried eight Dailies, where people dropped change into a tin can and walked away with the news. Or, if books were your preference, maybe a mystery written in a ‘Runyan-ese’ dialectal. When a kid’s imagination would create a new game just for the heck of it. Come Saturday, slouched in a darkened movie house totally absorbed in the visual as if a fly-on-the-wall. Movies and their stories inspired him to such a degree that once television hit an ambition was starting to appear. With those ingrained caricatures coupled with his own creativeness eventually led Stan into a career in Advertising. It was the nearest resemblance of Hollywood and it turned out to suit his talents well. So at the ripe age of eighteen decided that Advertising was his stepping-stone toward directing feature films. Continuing his education enrolled in evening courses studying graphic design, film directing and editing at SVA. Thus setting him on his way to eventually opening an Ad Design Studio several years later. Presently retired from NY’s hectic pace, he’s been able to transfer his visual abilities into deep-plotted, multi-character novels of his fancy. Most recent (Cottonblood) under the pen name: SP Zelinsky.
