Local Man Co-Authors Inspirational Book

Andrew Chapin co-authored "From Tragedy to Triumph," the story of John Tartaglio, a 17-year-old double-leg amputee.

Andrew Chapin recently co-authored an inspirational book, "From Tragedy to Triumph," the story of John Tartaglio, a 17-year-old who refused to quit as he battled a bacterial infection that left him amputated up to his hipbones.

Chapin, a graduate of the Bellmore-Merrick Central High School District and a middle school teacher in New Rochelle, NY, said that even though he always wanted to be a fiction writer, he welcomed the challenge of co-authoring a non-fiction book. 

"This ghost-writing endeavor was a challenge I accepted as it was something I had never done before," the Bellmore resident said. "After countless edits and tireless hours spent on the book, I believe I have crafted an inspiring piece that will inspire the multitudes."

"From Tragedy to Triumph,"  is  available in paperback on amazon.com.
