As a former teacher in education for over a decade, Napolitano captured stories of the damaged children of missing love and no protection. He mixed that with his roots and children's powerless dreams and wrote about imaginary people who could fix things.
The Cadillac River series started with troubled kids, and continued along their paths as less fortunate adults. The story continues when they confess their sins on River Road. Those sins always go back to their childhood and the parents who made those sins a reality.
This series is filled with heart and a lot of pain to go with it. "The first book is tough because you're reading words centered around a child's mind. River Road is a good book to start with, and Cadillac River makes more sense when you go back to reveal the children's roots and why they are the way they are."
A story that developed over a period of twenty years, having a heart strong enough to tell it was the key. Now, after holding onto it for so long, it was hurting more inside to keep it than it was to let it go. The story is fictional, yet comes from true places.
Recent books by Jeff Napolitano also include the new release of Insanity Corps, based on the world and the rules we must follow and the unnecessary greed and values we place on things.
Also released this year on Amazon's Video on Demand is the indie feature film, Real Death on the Screen, the documentary of an actor's recollections after being kidnapped, also directed by Jeff Napolitano.
