David Mercaldo: America's Storyteller

David MercaldoThe Staten Island ferry, cosmopolitan life, New York City, yuppies and little dogs who think they're people are only a few of the subjects dealt with by author, David Mercaldo. Fast becoming known as - "America's Newest Story Teller," this educator, playwright and author has given us such acclaimed works as Ferry (as in Staten Island, NYC), Seamstress; and now a children's book - Little Boy Boo(The adventures of a Yorkshire terrier who thought he was a boy). Whether it's a candid story of the immigrant experience in the United States or a children's fantasy, this author wastes no time in bringing you modern literary masterpieces that are unforgettable and timely!

He is the author, composer of a Broadway musical...Apartment to Let; an endearing struggle between a father and son called Fathra and now Breakfast on First Avenue – "the most unique approach to theater in decades."

Mercaldo is a prolific writer on such topics in education, politics, finance and drama. He travels nationwide as a motivational speaker to schools, colleges, civic organizations and business groups.

He brings to the printed page and the human ear, stories of life, hope and the struggles we all face in growing up and...growing older! And for the children...there is that wonderful experience many are cheated out of in our fast paced..."grow-me-up-quick" society...good old fashioned fantasy!

What Readers are Saying

Dear David, Thank you so much for the books. I loved LITTLE BOY BOO! and cannot wait to read SEAMSTRESS. I spoke with Mrs. Siblo, our library teacher at P.S.42, and she will be contacting you to set up an author visit. Dennis and I look forward to meeting up with you again.

Hi David! Staten Island Community Charter School thanks you for your visit. The kids are loving your book! I have a few more orders for you but I will wait until Monday to call in case there are others. HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!

What a wonderful experience for my little sister. I think every child should experience Boo Boo Baxter, the main character in Dr. Mercaldo's new children's book .

What a wonderful little book I bought one for my seven year old daughter and had to go out and buy another for my eight year old son, it was so much fun watching them draw and illustrate their books. I hope more books like this come out before they grow up. Thanks.

David Mercaldo has a way of bringing out human emotion with his pen. Yes, I laughed and cried...and I remembered...and oh, how I remembered!

FERRY is an excellently written, well thought out and entertaining novel about people and life, and if I didn't simply love the novel I wouldn't be writing about it!

FERRY is a true depiction of family life as I know it to be. Angelo Marullo, Mercaldo's main character, pays homage to those of Italian descent and dispels the common misconceptions associated with Italian Americans.
