About Joe Corso

I grew up in Queens, New York and I began writing in an attempt to raise money to pay for my grandchildren's college education. I've written 15 books and 9 short stories. I just completed a book titled 'LAFITTE'S TREASURE, which will be released during the summer. Right now I'm busy editing the fifth installment of The Starlight Club. When It's completed I'd like to write a sequel to the Lone Jack Kid which is a finalist in the 2013 Readers Favorite book contest in the Western category. The Starlight Club won the silver in the 2012 eLit TRUE CRIME category, and was awarded Honorable Mention in the 2013 Readers Favorite book contest. My short story FIRE: Box 598 won the bronze in the 2013 Readers Favorite contest, in the historical non-fiction category.

Go figure. If I would have known I could write a good story, I would have started writing a half century ago.
