Praise for Ernesto’s work:
“A spoonful of horror and a dash of quirkiness” -JanJenn, online reviewer
“Ernesto San Giacomo has a wonderful way with words and a keen imagination that makes his readers delve past the surface to peer into what really makes people tick.” -D.J. McCrary, online reviewer
About the Author:
Ernesto San Giacomo was born and raised on Staten Island, the forgotten borough of New York City. He spent part of his working life in retail management, and the rest of it teaching high school – and surprisingly still has his sanity. Ernesto married a military woman and moved to San Antonio a few years ago, leaving behind his teaching career and everything he’s ever known. Having always been the creative type, he took up a new career as an author.
Ernesto’s short stories tend to focus on the dark side of American culture, but the underlying themes hold true for societies around the globe. As human beings, we all experience wants, joys, sorrows, and regrets, and have views of how things ought to be. Ernesto enjoys exploring what happens when the ways in which we deal with those emotions and worldviews are taken to extremes.
