Jeff’s segment begins about halfway through the show.
For me as a first-time author, this story truly told itself. I was merely its scribe, being made privy to the story’s plot and narrative by way of soft, eloquent whispers. I’m sure this sounds a bit unusual, but it’s true, and I am eternally grateful for those whisperings. It was a pleasure to share my thoughts with Joan Herrmann and her radio audience, and I thank her for the opportunity.

Antonucci’s beautifully illustrated hard-cover novel tells the story of a young girl who spends part of each summer in the country with her grandfather enjoying life in the great outdoors and overcoming challenges along the way that shape her life forever. Deep Within a Blueberry Sky exemplifies the quintessential elements of what the selfless acts of giving and teaching, both profound offerings of love, really signify, and the tremendous good that comes, as a result.
First-time author, Jeffrey J. Antonucci, followed in the footsteps of his father, uncle, and grandfather, all master tradesmen, by working in construction as a bricklayer. It wasn’t until the idea for this story came to Jeff, as he tells it, like a slideshow before his eyes, that he ever even thought of writing, what would become, this novel. Up until that point, Jeff’s writings consisted of small personal pieces and poems for family members and friends.
