I give you “Confessions of a Milkman”. For twenty five years I drove a milk truck in New York. From retail delivery through wholesale I give you an inside view of the machinations of one of the city’s most infamous industry. From union and management coercion to the individual route man who had to learn to survive in a world devoid of ethics, there was no relief. Constant need to be aware of danger taxed both mind and body while serving their routes. There was one crowning factor in the my life as a milkman, the knowing that you could use your body to the fullest, and be appreciative of your compactly to live a full life.

About the Author:

My first novel “Zivo” was given a favorable critique by editors of Writers Digest. Dan’s Paper and the Suffolk Times both weekly newspapers on Long Island New York published feature articles praising my writing. . I have written a number of short stories about the Marine Corps which have been well received by my comrades in arms. In “Marines and Renegades” my second novel, I give a narrative voice to the Marines I knew and had great admiration for throughout my three years of service. I have studied the mind set of the Japanese soldier of that era and given them their due in the novel. “Marines and Renegades” is a summation of my experiences while stationed on Guam after WW2. “Marines and Renegades” received favorable reviews from the Leatherneck Magazine (the quintessential Marine periodical), at present it is in the process of being shelved in the Marine Corps Museum in Quantico Virginia. My book, “My Corps: Short Stories and reflections” recieved the Silver medal from The military Writers Association of America in the Short story category in 2014. Sitting back though not completed are a number of interesting short stories and novels. I am a father and grandfather, have been married for fifty years. I drove a milk truck (wholesale) for twenty years in New York City. After retiring I started a jewelry business serving the tourist areas along the east coast from Maine to Key West. I have been writing for about thirty years, it is just recently that I decided to bring my work into the public eye. My life has been interesting and my characters have been drawn from friends and enemies alike. I write under the premise that life is an adventure not only for the celebrated, but for each and every one of us. Living in New York has given me an adrenal high all these years, and fused a craving for living that borders on addiction .
