Gary Corseri

Author's Bio

In spite of numerous assaults upon it, I have maintained my integrity to speak the truth as I have understood it, to seek new knowledge, and to deal honestly and fairly with others. I have been faithful to my Muse for some 60 years, listening to faint promptings since age 8, following those paths which would bring me closer to communion.
