James Aiello has worked most of his career as a registered nurse but always dreamed of writing the Great American Novel, only life’s busy schedule never gave him that opportunity. All that changed in 2013 with the loss of three of his beloved family members. In order to survive the pain of that loss, he buried himself into his writing. Upon the completion and publishing of the “Forbidden Child Series” and now “Christina Powers American Goddess”, he has been able to rejoin the land of the living. Mr. Aiello was born in Middletown, New York. His early years were spent growing up in the beautiful Hudson Valley area of the great State of New York, where he enjoyed lazy days on the Hudson River, climbing the Catskill Mountains, and jet skiing across Lake George. At the young age of 12 years old, a thought came to him; he wondered what a child of Marilyn Monroe and JFK would be like. That thought would stay with him for years. James completed writing on his unfinished novel and on April 20th 2014, Easter Sunday at 12:00am, “Forbidden Child” was born, premiering at 45 on Amazon’s Best Seller’s List. This good news was shortly followed by Mr. Aiello being diagnosed with thyroid cancer, has since had surgery and is happily now a survivor. In June, 2014 Mr. Aiello formed his own publishing company, James Aiello Productions, with “Forbidden Child” as its flagship novel. Mr. Aiello and his modern day literary masterpiece has received award winning attention from the Hollywood California Book Festival, Southern California Book Festival, New England Book Festival, London England Book Festival and the Florida Book Festival. Mr. Aiello is proud to announce his new novel, “Christina Powers American Goddess” and his ultimate dream is to one day see Christina Powers on the big screen!
