Two New York City, Fire Lieutenants Put Down the Axe and Pick Up a Pen

Share Article

When they're not heatedly debating who are tougher, Engine Men or "Truckies," Lt. Jim Dillon and Lt. Terry Brody are talking about the finer points of penmanship - although their books couldn't be more different.

It's tough to teach a youngster the right way when everyone else on the road is doing it the wrong way

Jim was helping his nephew learn to drive when he was inspired to write 101 TIPS FOR LOUSY DRIVERS. "It's tough to teach a youngster the right way when everyone else on the road is doing it the wrong way," Jim says. Driving a fire truck in Downtown Brooklyn for ten years gave Jim the background to write such a book. Just being a firefighter gave him the sense of humor. 101 TIPS FOR LOUSY DRIVERS is a hilarious, anecdotal and pictorial romp that reveals what we all do but shouldn't be doing behind the wheel.

As for Terry, when a "Shakira," music video came on the television in the firehouse he got the idea for his teen, romantic comedy, novella entitled RESCUING MADISON. In the book, a young, New York City firefighter and a gorgeous, Midwestern Pop Star test the possibility of an impossible relationship. A Hollywood actor and director are interested in the screenplay version of RESCUING MADISON. And he already has a produced short film called BEER, CHOCOLATE OR YOU which can be seen on http://www.minimovie.com.
