Joseph Rinaldo


I am Joe Rinaldo, and I’ve written four novels - Valerie's Retreat, A Mormon Massacre, A Spy At Home and Hazardous Choices - that are available on Amazon. By day I work as Credit and Financial Manager for a heating, ventilating, and air conditioning distributor. When I first started writing, I thought being a numbers guy would make me an oddity as an author. That’s proved to be wrong. The more people I meet in this industry, the more I run across accountants and CFOs. Apparently, creativity infects a variety of people. Of course, I have the same dream as other writers. I hope my books sell a million copies and become smash hit movies. Selling ebooks isn’t the get-rich-quick scheme I thought it was before being published. It’s been a lot of work.
