About the author

Frank Terranella grew up in an Italian (mostly Sicilian) neighborhood in Lodi, New Jersey, and has been a writer for as long as he can remember. He's contributed articles to The New York Times, and the New York Daily News. He began his professional writing career with the Gannett newspapers in White Plains, New York, where he worked as a daily newspaper editor for four years before deciding (upon the launch of CNN) that there was no future for the newspaper business. He attended law school at night to earn a parachute out. But even after leaving the world of journalism in the rearview mirror, he kept writing. Frank wrote articles for legal publications, and even did a stint with Simon & Schuster as a tax newsletter editor. He's been paying the bills by working as a trademark attorney with an intellectual property boutique firm in New York since 2000. This book is a collection of articles Frank has written over the last seven years, all and more that can be found on his blog "Tales of the Tarantula":
