About the Author:

I was born in Italy on the Rubicon River (yeah right, that's where Julius Caesar on January 10, 49 BC said 'Alea Jacta est' [The die is cast] for posterity. I wasn't there, so I missed him. I grew up and was educated in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. I worked for Luxair, Luxembourg's airline. In the mid-seventies I caught the computer bug (incurable virus). I moved to Paris, worked for SITA, an international telecommunications company, as a marketing manager for the computer services division. Later I transferred to Atlanta, Georgia, USA, arriving there on February 29, 1984 on Eastern (defunct) airline. I traveled to ninety-eight countries. Monday in Atlanta, Wednesday in Rio, Saturday in Madrid. It sounds glamorous, but it isn’t. I once flew around the world in 96 hours, spending 65 hours on flights and in airports and the rest in Singapore, but I came away with a multi-million dollar (US) contract; I was mighty proud of myself. In 2001, we said: enough with the glamorous life! Let's move to ... an island (with a causeway to the mainland ... since we don't own a boat.) We moved to St. Simons Island, GA. Six years later, we said: enough with island life! Let's move to a city! So we moved to Jacksonville, Florida. By the way, in 2007 I published a book entitled 'St. Donatus, Iowa. A Luxembourg Village' (Don't bother looking for it, it's sold out). That village was settled by immigrants from Luxembourg. In 2009 I published an e-book 'Storms Over Luxembourg' recounting World War I events that engulfed the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg (See: www.luxembourgensia.com). I regularly accompany visiting groups from Luxembourg to Iowa, Illinois, Minnesota and Wisconsin, retracing the path of early immigrants. I lecture about the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, as well as other subjects, at events and venues, including at the University of North Florida (UNF). The present book is a compilation of articles published since 1995 in such publications as the 'Luxembourg News of America' (Skokie, IL) and the 'Luxembourg American Gazette' (Belgium, WI). I know, it isn’t 'The New York Times', so what? and other media. What else is there to say? For one, I speak English, French, German, Italian and .. Lëtzebuergesch, the official language of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. Secondly my wife, Marcia, and I have been adopted by Olivia and Bailey of the feline species, who allow us to share their living quarters, as long as we feed them and clean up after them. Life could be worse!
