About the author (2008)

Joseph F. Ruggiero was born and raised in South Philadelphia. He has spent his life working as a

psychotherapist. He is an avid reader, walker, and family man. A member of the Secular Franciscan order, he leads a quiet life with his wife and family. He has founded a most successful drug and alcohol treatment facility over forty years ago, where he continues as its CEO. Even though he earned his living as a therapist, he believes deeply in the healing power of fiction: to uplift, inspire, entertain the soul, and bring about a change of values.

A Rose on Ninth Street was Ruggiero’s first novel, and continues to be a favorite among many people.
