Quotes by fred berri...

                

 “The good memories always fade first. That’s why the world looks for a villain.”

 "Twist, turn and bend the truth. Now it’s fiction.” ™

 “No matter where you go, you’ll always be there in   body, soul and mind. You can run, but you can never hide”

 ”Humpty Dumpty was pushed. Do your homework. It doesn’t mean it’s true just because you read it or  someone said it!"

 “The things that come into your life that you don’t chose, makes you who you’ve become.” 

​"Being immersed in the past can be 

intoxicating to the soul." 

 

 

 

 

 

“We should offer reading as a special present to our children and never forced or presented as a chore they must do. We should offer reading as a special present to their little minds, so each time in their life they pick up a book to read, they feel they just opened a new gift.” 

“I believe something special happens when we open a book

and read. We are transformed into a different place and time.”

 

 

   

The moon reflects the love of your heart to poets–but hides the dark side few ever see.

During my very early high school years (going through a rough patch) I found refuge in my English Literature class with a great teacher, Mr. Peter Diaferria. He taught us to dig deep in writings of books. He made us break down each chapter and many times paragraphs to get the reasoning behind the author's view and meaning of who, what and where. One of my favorite books from this class was "The Merchant of Venice." 

Summary

Antonio, an anti-Semitic merchant, takes a loan from the Jewish Shylock to help his friend to court Portia. Antonio can't repay the loan, and without mercy, Shylock demands a pound of his flesh. The heiress Portia, now the wife of Antonio's friend, dresses as a lawyer and saves Antonio. From this, I now write Fiction Crime/Detective Murder Mysteries. On the way other side of the writing spectrum, I also write a series of Children's learning stories. These stories (Adventures of Carmelo™ ) help children understand new adventures, teaching respect, listening, following instructions, to be brave, and that it’s okay to be scared when facing a new adventure. Thank you, Mr. Peter Diaferia.

After his two knee replacements, his physical therapist, Anne Jackson had to see how he was walking. As he walked down the hallway, Anne would yell; “fred, heel to toe. Use less cane.” When he told his wife, Louisa, she said; “You have a new protagonist for your new private eye series. "Use Less Cane & turn it to Lester Caine.”
