At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
Almost from the time I could hold a book, I’ve loved sitting and just reading.
Who are your favorite authors to read? What is your favorite genre to read. Who Inspires you in your writings?
My favorite author is Tom Clancy. He really inspired me to want to write my own books.
Tell us a little about your latest book?
My newest book Contagion is book one of a trilogy. It’s also my second attempt at fiction. Most of all my other books have been non-fiction. Something that people won’t realize about the characters in the book are that Every single character is named from a family member or a friend. For some reason they get a kick out of me using their names in my books.
The book itself is about when a disease cannot be defeated, it must be contained. A father learns his daughter has caught the deadly contagion virus. It’s only a matter of time before the CDC finds out and erases the family from society forever. Vincent Gallo and his family watch in horror as their neighbors are “contained” by the CDC after their child is discovered to be infected with The Contagion. Reeling from the trauma and horror of what happened to their neighbors, Vincent’s oldest daughter, Alegra, now shows the marks of the virus. Now the Gallo’s must decide whether they can keep their daughter’s infection hidden from the watchful eyes of the CDC and a fearful population, or take their chances and run. Contagion is the first book of the 3-part Contagion Series. If you like chilling, thrilling, suspense-filled action, and stories of government conspiracy, you’ll love Contagion.
