A.L. Paradiso was born in Europe. English is his second language, following Italian—then Latin, Pig Latin, French, ASL and assorted computer languages. He now lives in upstate New York with three cats.
He managed a series of oil company outlets; ran two of his own; became a mechanic; then truck driver; did direct sales; became a Field Engineer for main frame computers. After ten years he switched to software and worked ten more years, receiving world wide acclaim, as a System Programmer.
In college he took a dislike to writing of any kind and swore never to try that again. Well, some years later, influenced by Babylon 5’s creator and his own pressure to write about three traumatic events, he turned to creative writing. As of Feb 2021, he has shared ~150 published stories with others online, with over 5.1 million views, in fifteen anthologies and two literary journals. He has been an AARP volunteer instructor since 2001. We suppose he’s one of those who just can’t keep a job!
