About the Author

Growing up in small town America, John W. Nassivera's mother used his front porch as an outdoor living room for family and friends to pass the time. A place where advice was garnered, jokes were told, melodies were sung, and stories were spun. It was a place where my mother told tales that taught us the cultural ideals of family, friends, and community. I’ve carried her lessons into my approach to writing. My stories and music address subtle messages of friendships, community, respect, collaboration, forgiveness, and acceptance.

The power of a story is magnified when it is shared.
