S.J. Armato


After 35 years of working at a large publishing company, I went back to college to train for my second career. I now work as an Occupational Therapy Assistant, providing services to special needs school children. I live in New York State with my wife, three cats named Stinky, Cali, and Tippy, and a loopy black Lab named Molly. I am very proud of my two grown kids, my daughter-in-law, and my two amazing grandchildren. I am currently working on my fourth novel.
