Paul Ferrante is originally from the Bronx and grew up in the town of Pelham, NY. He received his undergraduate and Master’s degrees in English from Iona College, where he was also a halfback on the Gaels’ undefeated 1977 football team. Paul was an award-winning secondary school English teacher and coach for over 40 years, as well as a columnist for Sports Collector’s Digest since 1993 on the subject of baseball ballpark history. Many of his works can be found in the archives of the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, NY. His writings have led to numerous radio and television appearances related to baseball history.
The young adult T.J. Jackson Mysteries series has led Paul to speak at the 150th Anniversary Battle Commemoration in Gettysburg, PA, and the National Baseball Hall of Fame during their 75th Anniversary celebration.
Paul lives in Stratford, Connecticut and Vero Beach, Florida with his wife Maria and daughter Carrie, a film screenwriter/director.
