I am a Sicilian born in Scotland raised in America. I'm a trained singer, a martial artist, and a mountain climber. I speak three languages, worked as an investment advisor for a decade, and have been married for thirty years. I've written three novels, a book about the stock market, several short stories, a collection of poetry, and numerous articles and essays.

During the course of one grueling, marathon of a mountain climb, Traina’s mind wanders through years of memories, mostly of him and his son, and of him and his own father. The stories are unsparing and honest, sometimes beautiful sometimes sad, and always honest and told only the way an accomplished storyteller could. Each story is a window into the introspective philosopher dad’s heart. Though Traina may not see it, his firefighting, life-saving son must have learned something from his polar opposite dad - if not how to be a man of action, then at least how to be a man of character.
