Stephen J. Cernava is a mechanical engineer and father of two college age children currently living in North Carolina. He has published his new book “Building America Great: One Brick at a Time! A Biography of William R. Martin”: a rousing and quintessentially American success story.

How did a low-income boy from Long Island, New York, become one of the most sought-after construction managers on the East Coast of America? William R. Martin learned several trades at an early age, then used that information to become a very successful construction supervisor. He worked hard, paying attention to every detail first as a carpenter’s assistant, then a plumber’s helper; and finally, he was doing electrical work on his own built-from-scratch homes. Using all this information, along with a confidence, willingness to put in long hours, and desire to get it right the first time, all served him well in his career. Along his life’s journey, he had dozens of interesting adventures (owned a restaurant), met famous people (served with Rocky Graziano in the Army), and built some of the largest nursing facilities, hospitals, and offices on the East Coast. He also served in the Army at the Roswell, New Mexico, base that was notorious for UFO sightings, of which William R. Martin was a witness.

Published by Page Publishing, Stephen J. Cernava’s engrossing book is an inspiring success story that affirms with every twist and turn that hard work, determination, and perseverance are the foundation upon which the American Dream is built.
