Louie du Ratté
Louie du Ratté always wanted to be a writer, ever since he was three (3) years old. Well, that’s not exactly the absolute truth. Actually, if I remember correctly, he even hated to read books, let alone write anything down on paper. It wasn’t until he spent almost 40 years in the Computer Business, that he published his first non-fiction book. It’s called “NFL Football in the Nutshell” and it’s available in Paperback on Amazon (Search: NFL Nutshell).
While teaching and marketing Computer Systems, Louie acquired exceptional skills in researching and presenting information in a logical manner. During those years, Louie also idolized the 1974 movie, “Young Frankenstein.” Whenever possible, he watched it, laughing all the way. Through the years, Louie has acquired a tremendous amount of information on the movie itself, the Cast Members, and the three Original Frankenstein movies it was based on.
Louie’s Pen Name, “Louie du Ratté,” is his attempt to produce a French Version of his Mafia Nickname, “Louie da Rat.” In his younger day, he was a Rum Runner for a mob friend in Camden, New Jersey. Louie explained, “We ran illegal booze into Philly over the Walt Whitman Bridge. Da boys at da liquor store all called me “Louie da Rat.”
This is the second book he has published, with a third, The Hapsburg Pin, scheduled for spring of 2015. Look for more of his Entertaining Books, in the years to come.
