L'autore: Roger?s first novel, Scarback, is an award winner, coming in second among 100 contest finalists. Three prominent New York City literary representatives: a publisher, media relations executive, and literary agent served as judges. Writing for Roger Corea is a natural outgrowth of his formal education. He earned a Bachelor's degree in English from St. Bonaventure University. Before entering the financial services industry, Roger was a high school English teacher and football coach. Roger and his wife live in East Rochester, New York.They have three children and three grandchildren. Roger's second book, The Duesenberg Caper, is a gripping thriller about the unexpected discovery of King Victor Emmanuel's long-lost 1937 Duesenberg Midnight Ghost, and the high stakes intrigue that ensues. It will be published in June of 2014. www.rogercorea.com
