Joseph DiMari

Biography

Just a brief history: special education teacher for 16 years, vocational evaluator at the local community college, which involved extensive report writing, for 15 years, and finally, a GED instructor for Omaha Public Schools for about five years, and then retirement.
Yes, I know, the picture doesn't quite match the above history, but it's one of my favorites, even if taken a few deca...,ahem, years ago.
Thanks for your time, and keep reading!

Smashwords book reviews by Joseph DiMari

  • The Alien That Came on Dec. 05, 2012

    Hi Gerty, I liked your story very much. Your title has a clever double meaning, and I liked the part about taxes - so true. Thank you very much for taking the time to review my book.
  • Zombie Nights on Jan. 12, 2013

    Tom's characters are well-formed. I especially liked the uncle and his barbaring partner. I could visualize them right out of Mayberry. Good work.
  • A Guide To Get Thru Abuse on Jan. 25, 2013

    Very good work. Your honesty shows through in all of your writing.
  • The Red Flyer on Feb. 02, 2013

    Bob's writing reminds me a little of Hemingway's - uncomplicated, yet descriptive and emotion provoking. I hope he writes more.
  • First Kiss on Feb. 10, 2013

    Gerty, Another good story with a lot of feeling. I was afraid for you when you described Marty entering the pizza shop, and it's a good thing you had supportive friends around. You did the right thing by going directly to the police.
  • John Wayne (Mr. Farmer's Adventures, Vol. 1) on March 10, 2013

    From humor to graphic reality, this tale covers the full spectrum. Too often, such personal stories are lost in the wake of time. Good reading.
  • Angels Everywhere on April 07, 2013

    We need reminding that there is much more that lies beyond this physical world.
  • One More Time on April 15, 2013

    Good story. Good writing style, although could use some editing in places. Not sure why Elsie, as level-headed and strong as she appears, would need a therapist. Overall, however, an engaging read.
  • Life in Fiction on April 18, 2013

    Very well-written. The characters are crisp, and the author creates a somber atmosphere in which to place them. A good read!
  • My Sadness on April 24, 2013

    Gerty, A very good read. As always, you write honestly.
  • My Dog on May 11, 2013

    Gerty, I'm sure Susie loved you and your family as much as you loved her. A good read.
  • The Good Old Day's on Feb. 19, 2014

    Gerty, I enjoyed reading your story. I know what you mean about the vhs tapes - I still have a cabinet full of them, and still watch them. Your story says to me; the most important things in our lives are our family and our memories. Good job!
  • Worm on March 30, 2014

    A few typos, but imaginative and amusing.
  • Summer Appetite on July 06, 2014

    The story ripens to a good ending.
