Florida Writers Association awards RPLA to The Roman Phalera

The Florida Writers Association honored me with its coveted Royal Palm Literary Award for my book, “The Roman Phalera,” at its annual award banquet on October 17. The book released electronically in 2014 and in print this year, is a work of fiction. Dedicated to my late brother, Paul, the novels tells the story of twin brothers, one a doctor, one a vintner, who are close until tragedy strikes. Carlo, the remaining brother, struggles to survive the death of his brother. An attractive neighbor distracts him but it is a dream that changes his life and teaches him a important lesson. As long as he keeps Paolo alive in his memories, they will both fulfill their destinies.

As Katelyn Hensel for Readers’ Favorite remarked in her review, “There was romance here, but it was an undertone. The main focus really was sibling bonds and brotherly love and I think we can all get behind that."
 
 One hundred twenty-one judges from the U.S. and abroad reviewed entries in thirty-two categories, the majority of which were book-length. My entry was one of three hundred, ninety-three entries received in this year’s competition.
