About the Author

After a successful career in Business, Joe took up writing as something to do in retirement. It soon became a passion. He has written many short stories and is in the editing stages of a prequel to "Born Yesterday" called "Battle Born." His second book in this series moves back to 1945 and chronicles Nora Jensen's life beginning with her time as an Army nurse in World War II. In school Joe's love was the theater. He carried the lead in a number of plays, including Prince Charming in "Cinderella," Pish Tosh in "The Mikado," and the villain Cassius Carstairs in "An Old-Fashioned Melodrama." Joe uses his acting experiences to create active scenes, lively dialogue, and memorable characters in his writing. Joe's only regret, he didn't start writing earlier in life.
