About the Author

I was a paperboy, car wash grunt, street-corner vendor, stock boy at a beer distributor, Teamster and a shipyard welder-all before my eighteenth birthday. I spent twenty years working on the Philadelphia waterfront, earned a degree at night, and began writing industry reports before I set out to pursue the writing life in 2009. More than fifty of my articles have appeared in local and national publications including Every Day Fiction, Fringe, Still Crazy Lit, Runner's World, and Salon.com. I published my first book, the memoir Twenty-four Years to Boston, in 2013. My formative years working on the waterfront are the foundation upon which my stories are built. I was a finalist in a literary competition in the Summer Literary Series at Concordia University, Montreal, Canada, and at Fish Publications in County Cork, Ireland, and I have received honorable mention twice in Allegory Literary Magazine. I am a member of the Muse House, a Philadelphia literary community.
