Joe Giorello grew up in a large Italian family in Queens, New York. From a young age, he was captivated by stories of Veterans and by military history in general. He credits the study of that history for turning him into a voracious reader. Later, as the father of a reluctant reader, Joe realized military history might change the course of his son's life, too. Great Battles for Boys was first a rescue-mission for his own family.

In addition to his successful career in business-to-business sales, Joe taught military history classes to upper-elementary and middle-grade boys throughout the Seattle area. Now retired, he writes from the mountains of Arizona. He is a member of the Daisy Mountain Veterans Association and enjoys working with horses, along with exploring the battle sites of the American southwest.
