About the Author
Like many people, I toiled away faithfully and blissfully for dozens of years at various corporate jobs that were usually rewarding and engaging, but occasionally frustrating and soul-sucking. And, also like many people, in the back of my mind was a dream; a dream waiting to be fulfilled. With the publication of “The Great Divorce” I am several steps down the road towards realizing my dream of writing a great novel. It has been the so-called labor of love. Writing it was mostly love. Publishing it was a great deal more labor. But here we are with the book available for your reading pleasure. My background is fairly typical, for the most part, and quite extraordinary in other aspects. I grew up in a small village called Zelienople, a northern suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I worked in a machine shop to pay my way through my undergraduate economics and accounting program at Slippery Rock University of Pennsylvania. Later I earned my MBA in International Business at Rochester Institute of Technology in Rochester, New York. Rounding out my educational training is a certificate in Industrial Relations from Cornell University in Ithaca, New York and a graduate certificate in Business Ethics from Bentley University in Waltham, Massachusetts. Career experiences have been plentiful. I’ve worked for major public accounting firms; predecessor organizations to KPMG and PwC. And I’ve worked for major public companies; Ampco-Pittsburgh, Milton Roy, Xerox and Comverse/Xura. With the help of various accounting, auditing, treasury, compliance and ethics roles I have been fortunate to travel the world from Mount Washington to Mount Fuji to Mount Kilimanjaro. I’ve been from Lake Erie to Lake Geneva to Lake Titikaka. I’ve danced on disco rounds in Marbella, Spain, with Pygmy women and children in Uganda, and in tribal rituals with the Maori in New Zealand. But life hasn’t all been a dance. There has been heartache and loss; child abuse and sexual abuse; temporary life in an orphanage and lost opportunities and regrets too numerous to mention. On the other hand, life has presented so many joys and wonders that there simply is no time or energy to be wasted on the darker aspects of living. I have a loving and supportive spouse, two wonderful, intelligent, beautiful grown daughters, and three handsome and witty grandsons that are all the joys of my life. All of these experiences, adventures and relationships have shaped who I am and help drive the creativity that goes into my writing. I hope you find some of what I’ve written to be enjoyable and inspiring. Connect with author on Twitter: Follow
