Blogiversary | Edward Mooney Bio & Giveaway

This week I’m featuring a very dear teacher I had in high school, Edward Mooney.  I learned so much from him and am honored to feature him on my blog.

UnknownTITLE: The Pearls of the Stone Man

PUBLISHER: Sourcebooks, Inc.

PUBLICATION DATE: April 3, 2001

GENRE: Fiction

“A Promise made.
A Love that will Last Forever.

If you’ve ever loved someone to the depth of your being, someone who for one reason or other needed to move on, you know the power of a parting wish.

The story of Joseph and Anne, his wife of fifty-three years, is the story of just such a wish-one that only true love could try to achieve. And for Joseph the strength to build the stone wall-a special reminder from Anne’s childhood-will take him places he never expected and that you will never forget.

The Pearls of the Stone Man takes us beyond generations and our own stone walls to the very humanity that unites us all-and shows us the incredible power of one couple’s love to last beyond parting and forever change the lives of those they touched.”

book 2TITLE: The Journey of the Stone Man

PUBLISHER: Champion Press, Inc.

PUBLICATION DATE: October 1, 2004

GENRE: Fiction

“The long awaited “prequel” to The Pearls of the Stone Man is here. In his touching new novel, Edward Mooney, Jr. continues the story of his main character, Joseph Marino, that so captivated his readers in 2002. Mooney’s first novel took the reader on an incredible journey through the last months of Joseph and his wife Anne’s marriage — addressing the fateful events that took place at the ending of their lives together on Pine Mountain.

Part of a trilogy, Mooney’s second novel, The Journey of the Stone Man, transports the reader to a time and place in the middle of Joseph’s life. Back tracking to a setting 25 years prior to that of his first novel, we are introduced to the middle of Joseph Marino’s life — along with the age old struggle between father and son trying to understand each other. Using the setting of a cross-country road trip, The Journey of the Stone Man spins a tale of a father (Joseph) and his teenage son (Paul) while traveling the country in a “Woody” station wagon. Mooney’s sensitive writing and attention to detail reveal timeless-family dynamics pertinent to all families.”
