Butch Berardesco, the most unlikely writer of our time; graduated from Asbury Park High in 1965, at the bottom of his class. He was voted the most likely to die before 30. He was educated on the streets of the Jersey shore, with priorities that valued partying above all else. He quickly fell into the outlaw biker world of, drinking and drugs.
In 1974 at the age of 27 and shortly after his first child was born, he had an after–death experience that should have changed his life. Trapped in a world of drugs and riotous living, he over dosed in 1979. However, with God’s mercy, he was given a second chance– a second time.
Butch taught himself to read or write in his mid–twenties.
1992, God blessed him with an academically superior wife, named Patricia; who helped him with his first endeavor – writing a trade manual, “The Complete Guide To Handrail Installation”
God then inspired Butch to write, “The Genesis Chip”. After countless rewrites and editing by Patricia, this book achieved a 5 star rating on Amazon.
Butch just completed a short story prequel to The Genesis Chip, taken from one of its many colorful characters; entitled “A.K.A. The Vapor”.
In addition, Butch is happy to finally add, “Face to the Floor”, the true account of his incredible journey from death to life.
