From the Author

The Ginger Bread Man is the story of a young man's journey of self-transformation from mediocrity to magic. After leaving an unfulfilling office job, a seemingly chance meeting with a Baker sets his life on a new course. Through the guidance and tutelage of this mysterious yet dedicated man, Jacob learns the simplicity and enchantment of baking. Along the way he finds love, meets new people and even invents a new type of gingerbread cookie. Through baking, Jacob discovers magic in his everyday life.

From the Inside Flap

"Run, run as fast as you can," chuckled the baker as he swept.

Jacob slowed to a walk and looked back. "Can't catch you," said the baker. Jacob stopped and turned completely around.

"Don't remember that old story, eh?" asked the baker. "An old woman baked a gingerbread man. But when she opened the oven, he popped out and ran away."

"Like I'm running," suggested Jacob tentatively.

"That's right," said the baker smiling and shaking his head. "You're the Gingerbread Man..."

More About the Author

Dominic R. Villari has incorporated storytelling into his work as an instructional designer for over fifteen years. He has created over 1,000 hours of training including eLearning programs, instructor-led courses and manuals.

Dominic was born in Riverside, New Jersey in 1971 and studied communications and multimedia at Rider College and Boston University. In these formidable years he was heavily influenced by the writing of South American magical realists such as Gabriel Garcia Marquez and Jorge Borges.

After earning a masters degree, Dominic spent several years as an instructional designer. He has also worked as a graphic designer and interactive developer. Throughout his eclectic career and interests he has always remained a storyteller. After specializing in non-fiction writing for several years, in 2007 Dominic returned to the magical realist genre with his new novel the Ginger Bread Man.

Inspired by the main character in the Ginger Bread Man, Dominic ran as fast as he could from corporate life in 2008 to open a bait, tackle and marine store in his hometown of Riverside, NJ. He spends his time minding the store, doing consultant work, and writing his next fiction book.

Dominic also offers several live workshops based on his non-fiction book, Practical Storytelling.
