Frank J. Pettinelli was a civil engineer but his first love (which would not feed a family) was literature. He has been married for 61 years to his wife Evelen and they have 3 children, 6 grandchildren and 1 great grandchild. He also taught blind children as a volunteer for 20 years at Gov. Morehead School. He particularly enjoys writing about Europe and the disenfranchised of the world.
His first two books are:
- Micheling – A collection of short stories
- A Faraway Sun – A novel of the travails of our immigrant family
