The Pizza Dough King Paperback – September 18, 2012
From the Author
The Pizza Dough King began life as an exercise in a creative writing class which eventually morphed into the final section of the novel. In fact, I created the life leading up to that section while tying in the concept of making a success out of a niche market few would think could exist. This is a story written in the first person point of view. It is exclusively the words and thoughts of the protagonist, Dino Parelli. I hasten to add that it is not "stream of consciousness" prose, all phrases and sentences are easily understood.
The story gives insight into how life's events influence Dino's actions and demeanor, showing how even his personality changes as the years go by. There are very emotional passages leading to it being characterized as a heart-warming book by readers.
About the Author
Born in 1938 and raised in B.C., Canada, I obtained an engineering degree two years after the Avro Arrow cancellation decimated Canada's aviation industry. That led me to emigrate to the States and work 35 years for The Boeing Company, rising to Chief Engineer, Avionics and Flight Systems. After retirement, I first turned my creative juices to developing software for financial planners, in part to keep track of my modest nest egg. In 2009, I succumbed to a long-standing urge to write a novel which was first published under the title "Delbert Pillage" and now as "Two Loves Lost". The Pizza Dough King is my second novel. Three novels have now been published. For more information, visit sandygraham.net and my blog from there.

Even with the caveats, I found the book well worth my time and worth reading. I shed tears more than once.
