  • About Me

    I was born in Brooklyn in 1950 to Sicilian immigrants. I've had more than 50 short stories published in small press magazines worldwide. I have twelve books in print: novels Close to the Edge, Adjustments, Exchanges, Rising Star Killing, Five Cents & Present and Past, Inside Out & Vito's Day, and novella Class of '67, and story collections A Hitch in Twilight and Billionths of a Lifetime. All are available as Kindle books.
    I'm a graduate of Lafayette High School in Brooklyn, NY and Western Michigan University. For nearly 25 years I worked data entry on the trading floors of the hectic commodity markets. My employment came to end with the advent of electronic trading. I'm now concentrating full time on writing. I sell my books on busy street corners in Brooklyn.

    Why do you write?

    Trying to make sense of the bittersweet mystery of life.

    Any favorite authors? Books?

    Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

    Go get 'em Vic. I like the selling of a novel on the street. Hope it makes the NYTMag list.
