About the Author
Vb has spent much of his career in talk radio in Boston, first as a sidekick on the Howie Carr Show (Carr thinks this book is too good to have been written by VB), then as a host on VB's Pleasure Pit, and now as a host on the Boston.com Morning Show on WRKO. He also spent eleven plus years in television as a commentator on the Fox 25 Morning News show in Boston. He is a lifelong visitor to Nantucket, and he has always wanted to read a book about Nantucket's Great Fire of 1846. Although a patient man, he could only wait so long, and since no one else seemed willing to take on the challenge, he finally decided to write the book himself. And as if having an ocean between him and the source material wasn't challenging enough, he also wrote this book while trying to help his wife raise three kids (all under five!) and train a new puppy! He hopes to sell enough books so that he can finally buy a place on Nantucket.
