About the author
This inspirational new book will be added to my credit as a writer. My stories have been published in my community's monthly magazine for over seven years.
I am a professional musician who has played on TV and movie soundtracks as a drummer and percussionist. I have worked, recorded, and performed with many top singers in the entertainment business such as Frank Sinatra, Broadway shows, and symphony orchestras for over 60 years.
I have Bachelors and Masters degrees from Manhattan School of Music. I also earned a Masters Degree in School Counseling from Loyola University and have worked in school counseling for 20 years. I have a diversified amount of experience working with top professional musicians, composers, and conductors plus years of teaching and counseling students of all ages from elementary school, junior high, and college.
As a teacher and mentor, I taught my students to believe in and love themselves, set their goals, and work towards their chosen field. Many of them have gone on to very notable universities and have built successful careers.
Along the way, I discovered one of my gifts was telling stories. My students' families and my friends would ask me to tell them a new funny story that I would usually make up on the spot.
