More About the Author

I write novels about the things I know and have experienced during my 62 years of existence on this planet. I mostly write about the paranormal and the extraterrestrial influences that reach into this world and affect most people's lives (on some level).

I was born in Verona, Italy, in 1952. My parents moved to America in 1957, for the same reasons that many people came to America after the War (looking for a better life). We lived on the East Coast for a few years and then moved to the Midwest. I served in the US army during the Vietnam conflict, and was stationed on the island of Okinawa, Japan. Okinawa, was a military staging area heavily involved with the war in Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos. And from where much of America's secret operations in the world took place. I was a specialist trained in combat and other specialized fields.

My interest in ecclesiastic history led me to do extensive research in the subject and I published two books on that genre.

I have published 8 books and thousands of blog pages, mostly on the subject of UFOs.

Lou's family-tree Biography in a very vivid and personal view.
The reader engages unforgotten experience of a family going through the most difficult times in modern History. Lou's skillful writing and extraordinary memory was putting me in the picture through the words in the events described, i could feel my heart was racing while experiencing the escape and survival of Lou's Father-Lino during the horrific WWII, i could sense the despair and hunger, and the utmost joy when a small relief came along the way... i believe it was a relief from 'above'. Miraculously, Lino (Lou's father) life was saved many times, when the allies bombed the convoy he was about to forced on, then again when he remained out of a farm house that food was given by hospitable people, later to be slaughtered by the Germans. He managed to survive extreme hunger and keep high spirit not losing himself to the war terrible affect on human psych. Lou shares with the reader as well his own experiences as a child growing up inside the life created for him by Clelia (Mother) and Lino, the sun in the garden in Verona, and 'La Befana' . You can smell the steamy fresh breads while entering to the Bakeries the family was operating. 'La Mano'- The hand. Appears twice in this book, once in the beginning and once when it rested on the shoulder of Clelia, marking the beginning of the upturn and blossom of the beautiful family of 11 children, and 20 Grandchildren. Thank you Luigi,Marcellina, Joseph, Linda, Zamira, Flavia, Clelia and Lino for making it all and make also Lou happen!

Love it, want more. Loved the pictures along with the story. How very interesting to see where all the different Italian familes moved to in the USA when they came to our country. Sometimes it was who they knew not what they knew and the other way around.

I learned a lot about what went on during World War II in Italy and why so many came to America after the war. Italy was much more tattered after the war then I realized. I also did not know the torment people went through with so many sides to take in the war. This is a story of one man creating an amazing family from nothing. He was persistant, hard working and loving. But none of it was easy!
