Bio: I was raised in SW Philadelphia during the wonder years. We moved to its western suburbs just prior to H.S. where I met and married my lovely editor wife, Nancy. We raised our four children there and currently have five grandchildren who were the inspiration behind writing this book...'A Glimpse from Christmas Past" I attended Catholic grade school (Most Blessed Sacrament through mid 7th grade graduating from St. Andrews in Drexel Hill, Pa). I attended and graduated from Upper Darby High School class of 74. We have some pretty notable alums e.g Tina Fey, Jim Croce, Todd Rundgren etc... I met and married my editing wife Nancy and we still live a short drive in the same community. We married in 1976 just a few short months before I lost my dad/mentor Joseph L. Donahue. My mother Marian B. (Nee Cotterall) was also revered by all who came to know her. I started attending St. Joseph's Univ. in 1974 a few years before we were married but never finished my Business Admin. degree as we began raising a family. However, my English Comp and Literature course was taught by a no nonsense professor. I guess under his guidance is where I got the will to try my hand at creative writing. So I hope you find it enjoyably entertaining from any different levels...as a parent, grandparent or just one who enjoys a good Christmas story.
