Vetro, Salvatore

Salvatore J. Vetro

I have had a passion for writing most of my life. Things got in the way but my kids have now grown up and they don’t want to hang around with dad anymore. Recently I became an associate member of the Crime Writers of Canada. I am hoping to team up with a mentor in the crime mafia series of writing.

At the present time my first novel is in transition and I am 2/3rds of the way to completion of a first draft. Here’s what it’s about:

In an epic sory about love, hatred, and revenge, Don Antonio Pileggi, a farmer in southern Palermo Italy seeks greener pastures in America. His rapid rise to fame and prosperity was not welcomed by the other 4 Mob families of New York City.

Vito, his nephew is thrown into the lion's den to avenge his Uncle's murder and subsequently takes over his entire empire. He has other problems to face.  His daughter who’s stricken with Leukemia must search for a bone marrow transplant donor. The donor ends up being his brother who is gay, living in Vancouver and wants to get married.

How does one break the news to a Mob Italian family that he wants to get married, albeit not in a conventional relationship?

Taylor, Robert

Robert Taylor is a retired federal public servant who lives in Ottawa. Starting out as an arts archivist, he worked in various government positions, including constitutional advisor, advisor in cultural policy, and member of a national committee that commemorated the fiftieth anniversaries of the Second World War.

A graduate in Modern History from the University of Toronto, Robert Taylor has a Ph.D. in Canadian history from McMaster University. He taught the history of the United States at Carleton University for a number of years and was a member of the editorial committee that oversaw the publication of the collected works of Canadian poet A.M. Klein. He has exhibited, and sold, as a visual artist.

For the past decade, Robert Taylor has been compiling an annotated bibliography of religion in crime fiction, entitled Holy Homicide: A Readers’ Guide – Christian Cases. The bibliography, still in progress, now has over 1000 entries. 

Holy Homicide focuses on book-length works that have a priest, minister, pastor, nun, monk, or other religious worker as sleuth; a religious setting; or a religious theme. Its organization is by denomination. Each entry provides a full bibliographical description, a short biography of the author, a description of the sleuth if a series, and brief commentary on the book. With a few exceptions that are noted, Robert Taylor has located and read every book that appears in the bibliography.

Lorie Lee Steiner is a freelance writer, photographer and old house fanatic. Born and raised in Paris, Ontario, she enjoyed a memorable sojourn in the Ottawa Valley (2003–2006) and now resides in Brantford, the Telephone City, not far from her early haunting grounds. She is chair of the Bell Homestead National Historic Site Committee (2009-2010) and spends much of her free time  searching for clues along the canal with her canine best friend.

 

A self-proclaimed history nut, Lorie brings her love of the past to life through non-fiction articles featured regularly in The Country Connection and Edifice Old Home magazines.

Entranced by all things mysterious, Lorie is now crafting her first novel – a classic whodunit inspired by the quirky 1860 cottage she shares with her ever-supportive husband, Jeff, and their kooky collie/retriever, Tobe.
