Lou Saulino is a widower, proud father of two successful grown sons and a sports enthusiast. In April of 2015 he added the title" Grandpa Lou," following the birth of his beautiful grand daughter, Emily Grace. Lou resides in Farmingville, Long Island with his golden retriever, Sloopy. A civil engineering graduate of Manhattan College, Lou also has his Masters in Transportation Engineering and Planning and is licensed as a Professional Engineer in New York and New Jersey. Lou practiced civil engineering for 40 years, predominantly as an Engineering Executive; holding positions inclusive of Director of Engineering, Chief Engineer, Executive VP, President and Chief Operating Office for several major New York metropolitan area engineering firms. He served as a Board of Directors Member for several of these firms, as the Chairman of the Transportation Advisory Board for two major Long Island Townships and as the Facilitator of a School District Building Leadership Team. In 2011 Lou ventured into the literary field, first developing his long standing idea regarding a "three sport professional athlete" into writing a TV Series Pilot and then authoring a historical fiction baseball book with a setting in 1957, which recreated many of his young adult life experiences. The TV Pilot concept was also developed into a novel. Subsequently, the historical fiction book became the basis of a trilogy about three friends since childhood, evolving from their teenage years into adulthood, with memorable sports and friendship overtones. The author's most recent work, "Bless Me Father", is Lou's first effort expanding his horizon into the crime story mystery genre. Lou has ridden a camel in Dubai, served as the Deputy Marriage Commissioner for the day in San Francisco after happily accepting a request to preside over the wedding of his son's close friends and has a noteworthy collection of humorous and heartfelt on-line dating experiences. Saulino continues to work part-time in his educational profession while developing new creative literary concepts and enjoying life with family and close friends.
