About Jon D’Amore
It was the 1960s. The place was Hudson County, New Jersey...mere minutes away from midtown Manhattan. Jon D'Amore was first published at 10. A story he'd written about the Civil War was transformed into a mimeographed book and distributed throughout the county school system. He went on to write for the school newspaper.
During that time the pre-teenager also began studying the guitar, leading him to hone his love and knowledge of music and the art of composing. By his mid-20s Jon was traveling cross-country as a musician.
While touring during the 1970s, he was also a feature writer for New Jersey's 3rd largest newspaper, The Passaic Herald News, simultaneously allowing him to enjoy the best of his favorite worlds; Playing rock & roll and writing.
In 1985, Jon found a different side of life. He said, "Goodbye and it's been a slice!" to the music business and got a job in the corporate world.
By 1999, another change was about to take place. For more than two decades Jon knew that within him there was the desire and ability to write, it's just that New Jersey wasn't the place to do it. So he drove to Los Angeles...and stayed.
He started writing as soon as he arrived and didn't stop until the manuscript and screenplay for The Boss Always Sits In The Back were completed. Since then, Jon continues to write all the time (he's written and co-written several screenplays and articles), and listens to rock & roll.
