The role of the Presidency is complicated more than enough for Elizabeth Ashton without the added political burden of being the first woman elected to this high office in America. She is delighting her supporters and converting readily her critics when she goes missing while attending a fundraiser. The unfolding plot is a matter of survival—not only personal survival, but also hanging in the balance is the endurance of the Presidency and democracy in America.
REVIEW OF MIRROR, MIRROR AT 1600 D.C. by D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review
“The President of the United States is female, successful, and beloved – and has been kidnapped. It stands to reason that the top, most trusted agents will spring into action to get her back at any cost, dead or alive.
And so it’s logical that a reader coming into the story could believe this will be a political novel – but they’d be wrong. It would have been a logical choice; but all too easy to write – and that’s what elevates Mirror, Mirror at 1600 D.C. beyond the usual genre read. Edward Galluzzi’s attention to multi-faceted details and stories and relationships between Hannah, Harrison (her personal bodyguard, who shares center stage with her), and others makes for a resoundingly realistic and compelling storyline..."

The interest, drive and motivation to become a writer often have their roots early in life even though one may not realize at the time. I was an 8-year-old third grader when I had some conscious awareness that writing is a good thing. It was then that several friends and I started a neighborhood newsletter.
With typewriter in hand, the newsletter was born and essentially shared much about nothing that went on in the neighborhood. However, our neighbors were kind enough to give us 25 cents for each newsletter… and most paying customers could actually read the carbon blur caused by a dozen carbon sheets.
As the years passed, I took several courses in writing and things didn’t seem so blurry … to date, I have published the following books (all books and details at www.galluzzibooks.com):
“Mirror, Mirror at 1600 D.C.”
“Side Stepping the Rules: Broken or Not”
“Twelve Upon A Time...”
“Twelve Upon A Time... Bedside Story Collection Series" - 12 books for each month of the year in color
As with all my books, I hope the reader enjoys the read as much as I enjoyed the write... Ed

Mirror, Mirror at 1600 D.C.
Harrison glanced at his radiated watch and noted that the hour was approaching 1:00 a.m. Time had sped ahead as it often does for Harrison. He took several steps and stopped suddenly. Harrison thought he had heard something, perhaps seen something, but he was not sure. Given what has transpired, there was not much of which he was still certain. He quickly scanned the area and noted that nothing appeared out of place. A wisp of fear awakened his adrenalin and as always gave him the edge he needed for increased alertness and survival. Harrison wondered if perhaps the terrorists had finally caught up with him…or was it just an alley cat on the prowl for excitement? He stood motionless and strained his senses as far as humanly possible. Again, nothing alerted his senses beyond the din of the night. Nothing appeared out of place. Yet, it was usually at such moments when he was most apprehensive. Harrison took several more steps away from Station Zero and disappeared into the cover afforded by the night sky. A darkened figure stepped out from the side of Station Zero and into the faint moonlight. The solitary figure remained motionless in the same spot that Harrison himself stood. The figure turned and glanced smugly toward Station Zero as if it betrayed its secrets.
