My novel “Curmudgeonly Yours” was just selected as a medalist in the 2018 Florida Authors and Publishers Association (FAPA) President’s Awards. It is the story of Labete, an aging, and grumpy old man.
This is from the back cover of the Amazon Kindle 2017 book: “People are not all good and do not have equal rights despite all the clamoring to the contrary. They’re mean, selfish, hypocritical, needy and racist; they smell and are generally unhelpful. CURMUDGEONLY YOURS takes a dim view of human beings everywhere but it especially needles people and their habits in Italy, France, the Middle East and the USA. Nevertheless, CURMUDGEONLY YOURS is a very funny book in a black sense. It is impossible to put down.”
