Ed Ireland was born in Philadelphia on September 29, 1954. In January of 1955, the hospital he was born in was torn down. Presumably, they didn’t want anything like that happening again. His adolescence was shaped in Catholic school where the proper use of the common language was the only thing that mattered to the short but strong nuns. In 1972 he joined the military where his wanderlust surfaced. He has since called many places home such as Texas, California, Nevada, Colorado, Pennsylvania New Jersey, New York and North Carolina while on his way to his current home in Miami, Florida. He claims his penchant for wandering is now at an end here in the shadows of Hemingway. Along this great and wondrous trip, he has collected memories of some of the most beautiful scenery this country has to offer. He has also met a veritable kaleidoscope of colorful characters that make up the tapestry of his work. Along with his scenic visions, each character in his works carries some part of people he has known in his life, both good and bad. On the personal side of his life, he is the proud father of two, a rabid Philadelphia Eagles fan, a self-confessed video game addict and a proud supporter of wildlife issues. His particular issue is support for the wolf programs across the country. He encourages support for these magnificent animals and donates a portion of each sale to Runningwiththewolves.org.
What do you get when a jack-of-all-arts decides to write a book? 338 unconventional pages. In the same fashion that Serena dabbles in many of the fine arts, her book “Fourteen and a Quarter: Coined Fiction” dabbles in many genres. Her book of 14 intense short stories is composed on the premise that it is truer to life to know less about the arc of a human story than to know the whole. Thus, the reader will find themselves re-reading and imaging possible continuations of the stories long after the cover is shut. “Fourteen” is an edgy, yet clean musing on classic virtues such as prudence, chastity, and sobriety, and illustrates the eternal constitution of the human spirit via the paths of unchurched Americans in their lives, and even in their afterlives. Serena has a secular bachelor’s degree in Comparative Religion, which background she drew upon to create her book.
