Joe Perrone Jr is an author whose diverse background includes a stint as a sports writer with a prominent New Jersey newspaper, the Herald News, and several years spent freelancing as an advertising copy writer. He has had numerous short stories published in the Mid-Atlantic Fly Fishing Guide.
In addition to his writing, Joe spent ten years as a professional fly fishing guide on the historic Beaverkill River in New York's Catskill Mountains. Nearby Roscoe ("Trout Town USA") serves as the setting for Joe's second, third, and fourth Matt Davis Mysteries, Opening Day, Twice Bitten, and Broken Promises (to be published July 2013). Roscoe is a place to which Joe returns as often as possible to fish his favorite waters and visit with long-time friends.
When not writing, Joe can be found fly fishing the many quality trout streams found throughout the surrounding area of North Carolina. He also enjoys cooking, reading his Kindle, listening to music (anything but hard rock), car trips with his wife, Becky, and relaxing with his cats. He and his wife live in the mountains of Western North Carolina, with their two Calico cats, Cassie and Callie. The author welcomes comments and queries from readers via email at: email@example.com. Joe makes every effort to respond to all emails promptly.
