About the Author
Gene Goldberg's varied background includes a tour of duty in the US Army, during which he was stationed in Naples, Italy, a career as an architect, mostly with the National Park Service, and a second career leading hiking and cultural trips to such varied places as the Colorado Rockies, Italy's stunning Dolomites, and the remote Kingdom of Bhutan. Now retired, he lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico with his wife and two small rescue dogs. Besides continuing to lead outings to Italy and Bhutan, he enjoys travel to other remote locations, most recently having visited Mongolia for the Golden Eagle Festival. Other interests include photography, contra dance, and cooking, especially Italian food though he rarely makes pizza; without a wood-fired oven he can't make pizza that lives up to the standard he learned to love while living in Naples. Once Upon A Pizza shows how he used his imaginative, architect's mind to entertain his son who, at age 9, asked for new bedtime stories. With no books to be had at the moment, Gene had to come up with something on the spur of the moment. These short stories, filled with improbable humor, are the result.
