Author & Speaker

Author & Speaker

I am an author, passionate speaker, and entrepreneur. I am a successful restaurateur, real estate investor and ex mafia enforcer. All those experiences have empowered me to help and motivate tens of thousands of people all around the globe. 

I am a dad to three daughters and four gorgeous granddaughters.

My passion for writing began when I was a teenager. I have written ten novels, one self-help guide and a cookbook. I have received numerous awards and accolades for my work, and I'm so humbled that people take the time to review my books, blogs, and speeches. I'm especially grateful when readers share anecdotes of how a positive quote or story has impacted their day-to-day lives.

My commitment to each of my readers is to create worlds that are constantly evolving, filled with characters that readers can relate to and have conversations with, anxiously anticipating the next episodes in the story.

No matter what road someone wants to travel in life, whatever the genre or subject, whether it’s cookbooks, thrillers, suspense, dramas, or gangster stories, my books never disappoint. Each of my stories is written from the heart and kept short, sweet, and to the point, hitting readers right where they're at.

I did spend 22 years as an enforcer for the mafia. I was a soldier in the Lucchese Crime Family. There is a six-episode docuseries coming out soon about my life in the mob. There is a one-minute teaser if you're interested on the home page.  

Thank you for considering my work. I am blessed to have such an onslaught of passion, creativity, and talent from my readers, and I hope you will join me on the journey.
