Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
Hello, let me start telling you about myself by saying that I am not a writer. I never had any ambition to write a book. The story I told was inspired for me to write. If you read my book you might find a typo or bad grammar but only because I wrote it on a whim, I used Microsoft word and I found it not catching punctuation errors, so, basically I edited the book with my 10th grade educated brain. Why did I write this book? I had the idea planted in my mind while in church one day. I passed it off as just an interesting thought. After I had it pop up over and over in my thoughts for several months and due to the content in the final chapters, I realized this was more than just my idea, I knew it was God wanting me to tell a story and reach out to people who might be Atheist, geeky believing in biology or big bang theory or people who just never put any thought into what happens after death. I seen this as a movie first but realized this story needs to be told first then once I had the story line in print it would be easier to produce a movie.So, chances are you might get to read a part 2 of my book, but, I might not ever write another book again.
About me, I am an Italian-American born in Altoona, Pennsylvania. I lived there till I was around 2 and my mother moved me to California where I had an incredible childhood. Later in life I moved to North Carolina where I had a culture shock about how extreme the difference in the people were. Later I got married when I was 16, why? I have no clue but it was legal to get married when you were 14 back then if your parents signed for you. Look how odd that is compared to today’s USA. I had a daughter right after, Amber, then Tony, my wife at the time claimed she forgot her birth control pills, after the second time I quit her and moved far off. I often wanted to have a relationship with those 2 kids but the Mother of the X-wife blocked and interrupted every time I made advancements to see my kids because she was the only source I had to find them, about 10 years later I eventually gave up after my other daughter Mia was about 4 years old. Then I had another daughter, Jennifer and then came Rocco. All my kids are awesome. Now I am a grandfather, 3 times over. My youngest daughter has Caylix who lives by me, we have a wonderful relationship. I live in Texas, man is it hot here! My hope is to make a movie and retire to do ministry for God. If I do not make a movie then I will just get to where I can do ministry. I hope my book sells millions! Not for me to be rich, I only make about $1.40 per book, but I hope many people read the journey Tommy took to meet Jesus. I want people to inherit eternal life, not eternal separation from ever existing. Any way it goes please pass on my book if you liked it, if you did not like it please be kind and not be negative, not all books are for all people. Thank you, with respect to all my fans of “From Geek to God” the novel.
