about me

Hello. My name is Joe. My wife and I are originally from Chicago, but we have lived in California, Alabama, New York, and down here in Texas. We have lived in Texas for 32 years now. The Lord has been very, very good to me. I am retired from IBM and from 3M. I had the honor to serve as a civilian engineer for the US Navy, the thrill of working for IBM on the Apollo moon-landing project as well as the privilege of working for IBM as a development engineer and as a creative writer. Following my retirement from IBM, I joined 3M as a design engineer and retired from 3M as a project manager. I have been teaching mathematics for the past 9 years at ITT Technical Institute I have been writing since my youth - poetry, fiction, non-fiction. I am a conservative Christian. I try very hard to show that in my writing.

My publisher is Keith Publications at http://www.Keithpublications.com/. I have numerous works published with Keith. Check them out.

I will try to continue to read work posted on Authonomy, comment, and back when appropriate.

Thank you, and Keep Smiling.
Joseph D Palermo

Mark. I will back your book because of the premis and because I want to encourage you to keep writing. However, I would like to offer you advice.

Danielle. I will back your book because of the quality of the writing. I was impressed by the "draw" at the very beginning. As a reader, I would have to keep reading to find out what happened to the woman's son. So I will back this. However, I never read books or stories about witches, vampire... view book
