THE TWELVE DAYS OF “AUTHORS” – DAY 1
Hello and welcome to my very own 12 DAYS OF “AUTHORS”! You’ve heard of the 12 Days of Christmas, right? Well, this is my version of that, my gift to these very special people! Starting today, December 14, until Christmas Day, I will profile one very special author and their written work. Because I am in awe of so many of you, (definitely more than 12), I had to come up with a process for my selection. So, I threw a bunch of names into a pot and the ones that came out, will be profiled here as one of my 12 Days of “Authors”!
JOHN “FIO” FIORAVANTI
John, (“Fio”) as we call him, is our newest addition to the Governing Board at Rave Reviews Book Club. He has assumed the role of Membership/Incentives Director and he’s doing an awesome “bang-up” job of it! He’s kind, gentle, positive, hilariously funny and he’s also a GOOD WRITER!
And now, a few words from “Fio”:
“I taught high school history for thirty-five years in just two schools in the Waterloo, Ontario region. My wife and business partner, Anne, and I have been married for 40 beautiful years.
We have three adult children and three grandchildren. In 2002 I wrote an educational book for high school students about writing skills in the discipline of History. “Getting it Right In History Class” is available in Canadian and International editions at Wintertickle Press.
In 2006 Iceberg Publishing commissioned me to write an inspirational book about my years in the classroom. “A Personal Journey to the Heart of Teaching” was published in 2007. The book won a Bronze Medal at the IPPY International Awards in Los Angeles in May, 2008. I retired from teaching the next month.
My wife and I decided to strike off on our own and founded our own publishing company in December, 2013. We called it, Fiora Books. Our good friends at Iceberg Publishing turned my award winning book back over to us to publish under the Fiora Books imprint. The 2014 edition of “A Personal Journey to the Heart of Teaching became available in May, 2014 on Amazon in paperback and eBook formats.” And then…“PASSION & STRUGGLE.”
Guests, please join me in celebrating my gift to you, AUTHOR, JOHN “FIO” FIORAVANTI! Run out and purchase a copy of either of his books (I hear they’re getting Rave Reviews!), follow him on Twitter and share this page on all your social media forums.
CONGRATS, “FIO” on being the 1st of my 12 Days of “Authors”!
