Hester

HESTER      Growing up in Asheville,  N.C. in the 50’s and 60’s seemed, at the time, to be filled with a rhythm of adventure and strange encounters sprinkled with an assortment of particularly interesting and somewhat odd characters. One of those persons who fascinated me as a child was my father’s friend “Hester. “       My dad was about as straight an arrow as anyone could find. He seemed to a preadolescent, somewhat indolent son, frankly boring. Looking back from a perspective of 70 years, I…See More

Comment by DONALD MAROTTA on October 24, 2009 at 1:01pm
My name is Don Marotta, originally from Philadelphia. I live in the Tri-Cities, TN
area. A book I authored was published and I continue to write, but less so. A cousin in Philadelphia was a theater producer, director, actor for many years and I am turning more to sound recordings. My new writing is humorous and reveals some humor which is Appalachian, yet most of my writing reflects my father's style. He graduated in pharmacy from Temple University as well as worked in the shipyards. Before immigrating, the family lived near Teramo in the Abbruzzi province. Please correspond further.

Vittoria, I am not Italian (I am one-half Romanian), but I am the webmaster for this website, and very active in the book world, and can help attract members, if you'll guide me. /Rob
