Henry  (Hank) Stocek, was born and bred in Deep River, Connecticut.   Many of you are acquainted with Hank, but did you know that he is a writer?  Well, his first book is published and in Barnes and Noble and Amazon and many other places.  Hank writes about what he knows and remembers of  growing up on the Connecticut River. Anyone who has an affinity for New England and especially those wonderful days on the River, will love this book!

Hank is retired, lives in Vermont with his wife, Cookie, two dogs (and a new puppy, Huckleberry Finn is his name!) and a runty, but reliable cat!

Here is “QUEEN OF THE VALLEY”!     If you want an autographed copy, watch for the Book-signing day!
