The March of the Turtles finds its theme in death. I had never envisioned doing such a book. I have included death references in some of my prior work, but not to the degree it is written about here. Then again, The March of the Turtles is really a 21-year culmination of my relationship with my wife's father, a man I grew to admire and love as so many around him did. He left us this year, just as I was wondering how to get the book finished. It is dedicated to him: Joe Nanney

About the author (2008)

I, like most everyone else, was born to a woman. As luck would have it, she turned out to be my mother. A lifelong relationship has resulted from this strange event which neither of us discuss very much. I was born in Maine. Some would say that makes me a Mainiac, with or without an "e." I say it makes me a native American, but there are some in this world that would disagree with the logic of that. There are some in this world that defy ALL logic. By dint of not making career plans early on in life, I have ended up in advertising, which is like the New Jersey of careers. I spend my spare time (an oxymoron?) trying to scribble a few thoughts here and there with the hopes that they will form books eventually.
