James Aiello is the author of Forbidden Child; the story of the beautiful and sensual, illegitimate daughter of Marilyn Monroe and JFK.   Mr. Aiello was born in 1957 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. In 1989, James met the man of his dreams, Michael Gillespie and they both raised their son, Tyler, together. Mr. Aiello graduated from Albany Memorial Hospital School of Nursing and has worked as an RN for most of his career. James also had a passion for writing and dreamed of one day writing a best-selling novel, only he never found the time to complete it. That changed in 2013, after the extremely emotional passing of James’ partner, Michael, who made James promise to finish his writing after his death. Fulfilling his promise to his departed Michael, 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 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, “Forbidden Child”, 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. James is at this time writing the sequel to Forbidden Child, “Forbidden Child Exposed” and is planning on a early summer release date.
