Frank Nappi has taught high school English and Creative Writing for over thirty years. His debut novel, ECHOES FROM THE INFANTRY, received national attention, including MWSA's silver medal for outstanding fiction. His follow-up novel, THE LEGEND OF MICKEY TUSSLER, garnered rave reviews as well, including a movie adaptation of the touching story "A Mile in His Shoes" starring Dean Cain and Luke Schroder. Nappi continues to produce quality work, including SOPHOMORE CAMPAIGN, the intriguing sequel to the much heralded original story and the thriller, NOBODY HAS TO KNOW, which received an endorsement from #1 New York Times bestselling author Nelson DeMille. The third installment of Nappi's Mickey Tussler series, WELCOME TO THE SHOW, was released April 2016 and led to a musical adaptation of the award winning series. "Buckle Up and Dig In" was released by MP Music House in September of 2017. Nappi collaborated on the song and has since signed with MP Music House as a writer for future projects. He is currently at work on his next thriller, AS LONG AS WE BOTH SHALL LIVE, and a memoir called I WAS AN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL OUTLAW. Nappi lives on Long Island with his wife Julia and their two sons, Nicholas and Anthony.
