One Small Step....

  With each new issue of American Writers Review, the editors and writers tried to find the best writing to share with their readers.  After a brief hiatus, Pat Florio, our managing editor, is back, with D Ferrara, her co-editor of Jewels of San Fedele. Pat and D discovered their complementary skills could produce something extraordinary

We hope to continue, not from where we left off, but from where we strive to be.

After co-founding the Jersey Shore Writers and the original East Meets West American Writers Review, I found it only natural to save D Ferrara from herself when she blurted out a promise to publish the "jewels" of a writers' retreat in Chianti.  We created a wonderful book.  We didn't kill each other.  We decided to be partners.

I used to think that writing kept me sane.  Maybe it did. But with age, came a Vespa - evidence that writing may have other side effects.  Then Pat Florio asked me to work with her on American Writers Review. It seemed an even better result.
