MY LATEST NEWS – MY NEW BOOK & MY INTERVIEW - FEBRUARY 2022
Updated: Mar 2
This has been a busy month for me. I’ve been working to edit and clean up my new book OUR HOLLYWOOD TALES. I’ve re-written a lot of it, added new material, deleted unnecessary stuff, and reorganized it so that it flows chronologically. The cover is in good shape, too—take a look.
It has been a lot of work, right in the middle of ski season. As I have done with most of my books, in-between writing I try to get in some ski days. It was predicted that we would be in a La Nina situation here in New Mexico this year, which means a drier winter with little snow. I don’t know if it’s climate change or what, but we have seemed to defy that theory. We’ve gotten enough snow to make skiing a pleasant experience, and it should help our drought with more water coming down the mountains in the Spring. Getting up into our beautiful mountains clears my head for writing and all the other chores that come along e.g., tax season. Nevertheless, I’m making progress on the book and publication is not far off.
Back in October, I was on a podcast with Bob Sorrentino who runs a genealogy site. We’re around the same age with similar Italian backgrounds. The subject was Growing Up Italian in Corona, New York as I did. Bob didn't grow up in Corona but nearby in College Point. He had relatives in Corona, so he spent a lot of time there.
I just got around to putting links to the podcast on my website. If you are reading this blog on a computer, click on Media at the top of the page, under INTERVIEWS, you’ll see Bob Sorrentino, Oct 30, 2021. If you are on a phone, click on the three horizontal bars in the top right corner of the website home page, then click on Media. You might have to scroll down to INTERVIEWS. Whether you are on a computer or phone, you can watch the interview on YouTube (Watch Now) or listen to it (Listen Now).
I hope you enjoy the interview as much as I enjoyed doing it.
