Jose Di Lenola

Jose Lauriano Di Lenola writes because with each year that passes behind the wall, another memory of his youth slips away–writing is his attempt to hold onto those memories. Besides writing he passes his time as a Certified Counseling Aid in Social Living Skills, working with at-risk teens, teaching, and creating innovative therapeutic classes. His work has appeared in Stone Canoe and Prisoner Express Newsletter.
