    Dr. Lance Fogan

    From Neurologist to PageTurner Press and Media Author

    Life brought many surprising twists and turns to Dr. Lance Fogan. Long before becoming a neurologist and professor of neurology, he took up anthropology and linguistics at the State University of New York at Buffalo. An after-school job at Roswell Park Cancer Institute in Buffalo influenced him to take up medicine, and later, he took up neurology as his specialty.

    Before becoming a PageTurner Press and Media author, Dr. Fogan has worked at various institutions, including Kaiser Permanente in Medical Center in Southern California as a general clinical neurologist, a position he held until his retirement in 1997. He has also taught as a clinical professor of neurology at the UCLA School of Medicine.

    Dr. Fogan was awarded the American Academy of Neurology History Prize for his paper “The Neurology in Shakespeare.” He is also an active champion of epilepsy awareness and shares his knowledge of the illness through blogs and on social media. His family drama novel Dings touches upon epilepsy and how the disorder changes people’s lives.

    Frank P. Daversa

    PageTurner’s Author Writes from a Place of Spirituality and Enlightenment

    Spirituality in the modern world has been the driving force behind Frank P. Daversa’s writing and lifelong missions. This has sprung from experiencing a serious illness in 1997, which led him on a spiritual journey, something that he has been doing ever since.

     

    This New York native finished his AAS with honors in 1981 and earned his BS in 1986. Before becoming one of PageTurner’s inimitable authors, he has worked in the corporate world for 14 years. However, before publishing his first ever novel in 2011, he has previously published his first web articles in 2008. They were mostly on spirituality and spiritual journey.

     

    He has published three books with PageTurner Press and Media: Spirituality in the 21st Century, Politics in America: A Guide to the Two-Party System, and Young Adolf: An Alternate History. Two of these books are social commentaries and one is a best-selling historical fiction.

    Rabbi Boruch David

    The Way of the Modern Rabbi: Revolutionizing the Biblical Narrative

    Rabbi Boruch David is a 12th generation rabbi, who is also an award-winning educator, writer, and speaker. And though he came from a long line of rabbis, this did not stop him from sharing novel insights and imagination with how he brings the Torah to life. 

     

    His desire to revolutionize the biblical narrative brings forth the Torah of Nations series, with Adam and Eve: The Rest of the Story as its first offering in this series. In this sensational biblical novel he published with PageTurner Press and Media, Rabbi David expands on the story of Adam and Eve, supplying conversations between Adam, Eve, God, and the serpent. 

     

    Though he seeks to revolutionize how the Old Testament stories are to be taken, he still makes it a point to ensure that the narrative follows the Jewish interpretation and that it does not deviate from the Jewish philosophy and theology.

    Virgil D. Mochel

    A Great Depression Survivor and Winner

    Virgil D. Mochel was born in a farm near South Bend, Indiana during the Great Depression, and growing up in one of US history’s most trying periods had made him grow spine of steel and a man who thoroughly enjoys the simple pleasures of life. 

     

    Aside from being a husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather, Virgil is also a researcher with a PhD in physical chemistry, a writer, a musician, and a play director and producer. But amongst all this profession and titles, the one Virgil invested most of his time lately was with being a writer—more specifically, becoming a family historian and story keeper. With the books he published with PageTurner Press and Media as proof of these endeavors.

     

    With PageTurner, Mochel had published Virgil’s Story, which tracks the movement of his European ancestors before their migration to the New World. Here, he also shares the life journey he and his wife, Marian, had since the start of their relationship. He also published A Friendly King, a story of their Border collie who had befriended everyone in their community and had become the neighborhood dog.

He has also authored a number of history textbooks, study guides, and articles that were published in New South Wales, Victoria, and other parts of Australia.

Masters, his first book of the Detective Inspector Spence Hargreaves series, Malicious Obsessions. He then continued to write more Detective Inspector Hargreaves novels—Delusions and Grandeur and The Evil of Virtue—with the fourth novel underway.
