Alan P. Scaglione

Alan P. Scaglione is a writer who reflects on the simple contradictions and complexities to living this ”gift from God” called life-
He believes that Life is a journey that, with compassion, a little levity and perspective, we help each other get through.
His greatest compliment was being told “you draw pictures with your words!”
He has devoted his life to “drawing”…in his poetry, his songs, his weekly “Reflections of Life” blog entries, his short stories and now... his novels!
Alan is an everyday guy who refuses to let circumstances dictate his view to life; he lives an attitude of gratitude and spreads his positive outlook everywhere he goes.
His BEST day is a day shared making a memory that will last a lifetime!
Please check out Alan’s books “One Unexpected Event – How Would Your Life Change?” and its sequel “One Unexpected Event – Aftermath!”
