ABOUT US...

   

       Mona Rodriguez and Dianne Vigorito are cousins. Throughout their lives, they had heard many stories from family members that were fascinating, sometimes even unbelievable, and decided to piece together the puzzle of tales. Through research and interviews, their goal was to create a fictional story that follows a family through several decades, providing the reader an opportunity to stand in the shoes of a past generation and walk in search of their hopes and dreams. What they realized in the process is that human emotions have been the same throughout generations - the difference is how people are molded and maneuvered by the times and their situations.

       Mona and Dianne strongly believe there is tremendous knowledge to be gained from those who are older and wiser, a resource precariously looming at everyone’s fingertips.
       Mona lives with her husband in New Jersey and they have two grown sons.
I am deeply saddened by the loss of my
dear friend and cousin Dianne Vigorito.
I am fortunate to have had the pleasure of
working with Dianne on Forty Years In A Day
and sharing in this extraordinary journey with her.
Her warmth and friendship will be missed.
I know heaven has been blessed with another angel.
