Guest: Joe Gillan
Author of Just Before the Dawn, Joe lives on Siesta Key, a barrier island in southwest Florida offshore at Sarasota.
He is a native of Amsterdam, NY, holds a B.A. degree in English literature from Ithaca (NY) College, and spent most
of his business career working for a large corporation in New York City, Brussels, Belgium and Washington, DC. Many
years ago, he worked for the Gannett Company at its then-flagship newspaper, the Rochester (NY) Times-Union, first
as a sports writer and subsequently as a police and then general assignment reporter. Mr. Gillan is currently serving in
Florida, by appointment of the Governor, as a vice-chairman of the Florida Local Advocacy Council, whose mission is to
protect and advocate for a better quality of life for Florida citizens with special needs. Many years ago he served as
president of the Connecticut Association for Children with Learning Disabilities. Joe is the proud father of three grown
daughters. An avid daily jogger, Joe has run some three dozen 26.2- mile marathons over the years, including the
New York City (four times), Philadelphia, San Francisco, London and Athens marathons. An Army veteran from the
Vietnam era, Just Before the Dawn is his first novel.
