Mike Gallo is a sports enthusiast and endless dreamer who lives in northern Indiana, where he has taught and continues to teach social studies and language arts to middle school and adult students for nearly twenty years. During that time, he has spent countless hours grading and evaluating his students’ writing while putting his own passion and desire to write off to the side until recently. He is grateful for his wife and her unwavering support and encouragement to pursue his goal of writing a novel and to all past and present students whose success has inspired him to act on his own dreams beyond teaching. His goal was to show them and his three kids that if you work hard, you can achieve your dreams.
