Frank Morelli has been a teacher, a coach, a pretzel salesman, a bus driver, a postal employee, a JC Penney model (see: clerk), an actual clerk (like in the movie of the same name), a roving sports reporter, and a nuclear physicist (okay, not true). At heart, he’s always been a writer. His fiction and essays have appeared in more than 30 publications, including Cobalt Review, Philadelphia Stories, Jersey Devil Press, Rind, and Indiana Voice Journal. He writes a monthly column, Peanuts & Crackerjacks, for Change Seven Magazine. His debut novel, No Sad Songs, will be released in early February 2018.
