The D.A.'s Forever by Laura Pinto

My first novel, THE D.A.'s FOREVER, has been published exclusively on Kindle!
Here's what the book is about:

It's 1988, and four men reunite for a special Fifties-themed homecoming celebration at their old New Jersey high school, thirty years after graduation. While in their teens, the boys had been known collectively as the D.A.'s (not so much a "gang" as a tight group of friends); but time and distance have brought changes and adult responsibilities. Letting go of the past proves challenging for the quartet, which consists of Frankie, the group leader and tough-guy greaser still playing the part at age 48; Denny, Frankie's best friend, whose misguided counsel to his 20-year-old son backfires in his face; Tony, the romantic, whose marriage and happiness are threatened by the reappearance of an old love; and Eddy, the straight-laced nerd and arguably most centered of the four thrown into emotional turmoil by the appearance of a new one. Now, all four must find the courage to leave the past behind as they come to terms with middle age and the realities of their diverse lives. NOTE: This book contains explicit language and sexual situations and is intended for mature audiences only.
If you're a babyboomer like me who loves the music and culture of the 1950s, please click on one of the links to check out THE D.A.'s FOREVER. Sale price is just $2.99 (USD), a real bargain for a full-length novel! Amazon Prime members can borrow the book, for free, from the Kindle Owners' Lending Library.
(No Kindle? No problem! You don't need a Kindle device to read a Kindle book; just download a free reading app for your PC, Mac, or smartphone, or use the Kindle Cloud Reader to read the book in your browser!)
Note: THE D.A.'s FOREVER contains explicit language and sexual situations.

This site was originally on Yahoo GeoCities (which is now defunct) and was first created in 2001.  New content has been, and will continue to be, added from time to time, but the basic layout and premise of my personal homepage remains the same.
I'm hopeful that my personal web site will serve a dual purpose -- education and entertainment!  First of all, I hope to use this site to share some of the experience I've acquired during more than 40 years on this planet.  I will share my thoughts on a variety of subjects and hope that I can make some small difference in the world.

Take a look at my All About Me page for some fast facts.  Next, go to my Sayings page for some words of wisdom ... and maybe a laugh or two.  Check out my Rules for Living page, in which I attempt to make the world a better place by promoting kindness and fairness.  Read my thoughts on Relationships and Love. Next, click on the link for my Funny Stuff page for some more giggles!

Are you ready for the responsibility of having a baby? 
ARE YOU SURE? Read my warning page first. Having a baby is a highly personal and very emotional decision, and children don't come with instruction manuals!  After you've read and absorbed
Want to have a baby?, then go on to part II, Birth control: What works, what doesn't.

I've also added a page explaining
Why time is like money in the bank.  There is only so much of it in life (in fact, time IS life), and you should not only spend it wisely but be careful not to let other people spend it for you (notwithstanding normal, everyday responsibilities of course).  Also, please check out What is God's Role/What is Ours?

Pet Ownership Page ... things you should know before adopting a furry friend!

I'm also using this site to promote my fan pages devoted to the grooviest singer in the business,
Ron Dante!  Ron was the lead singer for The Archies and The Cufflinks among other accomplishments in a very diverse career that started in New York City in the 1960's and is still going strong.  Take a look at the pages dedicated to him ... his bio, and the Concert Tribute page which was actually the catalyst for this entire site on GeoCities back in 2001.
