Call in to speak with the host
Welcome to another Tuesday on Journal Jabber! We have switched up our itinerary a bit because Josie Brown is still in Europe - but never fear - she will be here Jan 8th - out first show of the new year!
However! We do have another fabulous author with us here tonight - Mr. Paul Lonardo! He is the author and co author of multiple books, some that will touch your heart, and others that will seriously have you checking your closets and giving your neighbor a second look.
Paul Lonardo has had short fiction, book length fiction and non-fiction books published. Most recently he has co-authored a true crime book with Jeannie McDonough; Caught in the Act, a Courageous Family's Fight to Save Their Daughter from a Serial Killer.
A previous true crime title that Paul co-authored was Thrill Killers, A True Story of Innocence and Murder Without Conscience, a collaboration with the lead detective who investigated the double homicide chronicled in the book.
Paul also collaborated with Gina Russo on From The Ashes, Surviving the Station Nightclub Fire, the personal memoir and reflections of a survivor of the 2003 Rhode Island fire disaster that claimed the lives of 100 people is the subject of this book.
In Strike IX Paul recounts the story of the 1999 Providence College baseball team, which learned that their sport would be eliminated at the end of the upcoming season in order for the school to comply with Title IX sex discrimination mandates.
Two early out-of-print novels, The Apostate and Monstrosity, are now available in electronic formats.
Paul attended Columbia College, a film school in Hollywood, CA and studied screenwriting. He received an A.S from Mt. Ida College in Newton, MA and received a B.A. in English from the University of Rhode Island.
It's good to talk.
