Born and raised in New England. This Cape Cod lad headed west in 1959 and never looked back. Retired in 2005 as an educator and basketball coach. Currently working on a number of children's books, an autobiography for my grandchildren, and my adventures as a basketball coach. Travel has always been high on the agenda of things to do. A trip back to the tip of Cape Cod brought back numerous memories and adventures. A recent trip to Hawaii for our 45th anniversary was a major highlight for 2015. Our second children's book called Fishing Lessons for Grandpa was published in September 2015 and has been as high as 12th on Amazon.com's Children Books at http://www.amazon.com/Fishing-Lessons-Grandpa-Tom-Dirsa/dp/1927510651/ref=sr_1_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1442853923&sr=1-2&keywords=fishing+lessons+for+grandpa

An evocative piece but far too short to engage the reader in any sense of involvement in the tale. Sometimes a little over the top with the adjectives — majestic lighthouses etc.
