About the Author

Joseph  F.  Ruggiero  was  born  and  raised  in  South Philadelphia.  He  has  spent  his  life  working  as  a

psychotherapist.  He  is  an  avid  reader,  walker,  and family man.  A member of the  Secular  Franciscan  order, he  leads  a  quiet  life  with  his  wife  and  family.  He has founded a most  successful  drug  and  alcohol  treatment facility  over  forty  years  ago,  where  he  continues  as  its CEO.  Even though he earned his living  as  a  therapist,  he believes deeply  in  the  healing  power  of  fiction:  to  uplift, inspire,  entertain  the  soul,  and  bring  about  a  change  of values.

A  Rose  on  Ninth  Street  was  Ruggiero’s  first  novel,  and continues to  be  a  favorite  among  many  people.
