IamA Billy O'connor, a retired Lt. FDNY, former Bronx Teamster, Bar Owner, Bookie, and Vietnam Vet -- Now Author and Standup Comic AMA!
After 9/11, I conquered my dependency problems and went on to earn my Journalism degree from the University of Florida. I have written two screenplays, numerous political columns, and now am publishing my first novel, Confessions of a Bronx Bookie. I am here to answer any questions on Self Publishing and talk about anything related (or not) to my prior experience in life. Here are a few:
*23 years on FDNY *5 years experience as a illegal bookmaker in the Bronx *Unioned truckdriver in the Bronx (Teamster) *Former Bar and Restaurant Owner in Queens as well as Flushing, NY *Vietnam Veteran
