More About the Author

CQ Scafidi began his writing career at a very young age winning his first prize for an essay on "What Freedom Means to Me," awarded by the American Legion, during his third grade year. Since then his travels have taken him around the globe and he has been witness to several World changing events including in Rome, Italy in 1978, the death of two Catholic Popes and attendance at a state funeral. In 1996 he was witness to the Centennial Olympic Park Bombing and its horrific aftermath. On September 11, 2001 he was serving as a member of the International Business Committee for the World Trade Center of New Orleans and assisted with the relief efforts immediately following the attack.

After graduating from Loyola University of New Orleans with a Bachelor's Degree in Accounting, his love of writing and history brought him back to journalism. He served as an investigative journalist and subsequently cut his teeth by covering various stories as a reporter and editor for Gambit Newsmagazine,USA Today, reporting on the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill. While covering stories for Gambit, including the 1988 Republican National Convention, Mr. Scafidi also served as Assistant Producer for the British Broadcasting Corporation's, historic four-hour broadcast of "Mardi Gras to the World." He also worked as an editor for an NFL weekly publication for the New Orleans Saints.

It was during his youth that he found his love of fine cuisine and funded his education while working in some of New Orleans finest restaurants beginning with the World Famous Café du Monde and then to several of the finest dining establishments in New Orleans. Mr. Scafidi comes from a long-line of restaurateurs, caterers and gourmets. His Sicilian-American grandfather, Max Scafidi was the owner of the first Pizza restaurant on Long Island, New York in the 1930's and 1940's, The Orchard. His mother, Theresa, also operated a successful catering business in New Orleans. While in Rome, Mr. Scafidi was also first exposed to the world of back room high-level diplomacy. While his father served as the Maritime Attaché for the U.S. Embassy in Rome, Italy, CQ Scafidi was witness to the aftermath of the fatal attack on Italy's president Aldo Moro, in 1978. His father also served as interim NATO Ambassador for the 1978 session. His father later moved the office of Attaché to Athens, Greece and barely missed the attack on the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, Iran by a matter of days.

Mr. Scafidi went on to serve as the International Marketing Manager for United Parcel Service in the Gulf South District. During his tenure there he worked with some the largest global corporations, professional associations and conventions. He served as liaison for the National Football League; bringing him back full circle after his earlier work as an editor for the NFL. Mr. Scafidi also worked with organizations as vast as the United Way of America, the American Bar Association, BellSouth, even Enron, just prior to its fatal collapse. His unique life experiences, travels and employment opportunities have provided Mr. Scafidi with the wealth of information to craft tales of intrigue, murder, suspense and global esoteric conspiracy. Read Mr. Scafidi's work and you'll see world events in an entirely different light. Mr. Scafidi is the best-selling author of an award-winning novel of global conspiracy, Time Couriers, and new digital short series, The Herman Thrice Series, available on Amazon via Trestle Press and major booksellers.

I was hooked from the first page and couldn't put it down all the way through the heart-stopping conclusion! Being a native New Orleanian, I can tell you that C.Q. Scafidi knows his city. The characterizations were spot on and the dialogue was very authentic, I just fell in love with Louis. Throughout the book, I couldn't stop thinking about the amount of research that must have been done. He does a great job weaving the wealth of factual information into such a compelling story. The book adds even more mystique to a city that is already shrouded in mystery. C.Q. Scafidi crafted a fresh story out of seemingly unconnected themes and skillfully brings them together with some very interesting twists. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Jim Marrs, Dan Brown or any other conspiracy writers. Bravo!

Being the page turner that it is, this book read almost too quickly. I was left wanting more, but the plot-line advanced very smoothly and was packed with historical eccentricities about New Orleans that make it comparable to the Da Vinci Code but in a league of its own, as it covers a city which is anything but mainstream.

What a treasure to find a story with great characters and an authentic feel for the city of New Orleans. Appreciated the descriptive details in the story and the fast-paced way the author took the reader along for a roller coaster ride. Read this book. You'll find the time well worth the adventure.

I loved Time Couriers. From the well-developed and likable characters to the loop-de-loop plotting that kept me guessing, Time Couriers was fun and intense at the same time. I will be looking for more books from CQ Scafidi and I will read his digital shorts too. Time Travel - yes!!!! I love it!
