Most, if not all books have a back story, what inspired you to write Why Men Are Suspicious of Yoga And Other Very, Very Funny Stories?
I was the humor columnist for a group of Gatehouse Newspapers for five years. My goal has always been to have people smile & laugh. Local readers would make my day when they had read one of my newspaper articles and said how great it was to wake up smiling & laughing.
There is a two minute video on my various platforms that I go on about this.
You will note the Neurology doctor’s endorsement on the front cover: JUST WHAT THE DOCTOR ORDERED LAUGHTER.
While reading your book what are you hoping that readers will take away with them when they finish the last page?
What would I want people to take away is: Try to look for the humor in so many situations that otherwise might appear dark.
Your book is very funny, do you ever do live comedy sets?
Yes! I call myself a humorist. I’ve performed my pieces in more venues than I can count: Somewhere in my house, I’ve got a ton of videos. You can also find me on YouTube. I have two “gigs” coming up in Fla. Hopefully I’ll recover in time: for late Feb & March.
Writing a book like this can be very challenging. Did you learn anything new about yourself while writing it?
YEAH! I wish I had paid more attention to grammar in high school.
What is new for you in the new year? Are you working on a new book?
I’m totally excited about my new book: For now it’s called: “LOOKING BACK” I IMAY ADD “LOOKING BACK TO THE SIXTIES.”
It’s about growing up in Dorchester, Mass, or I might say TRYING to grow up in Dorchester and then moving to N.Y.C. in the early sixties, and myself in my early twenties; I might add I was a country Bumpkin. Then WHAM! BAM! ALACAZAM!! N.Y. C. had to be the greatest place on earth to be in 1963, especially if you thought you were never going to die.
