Cliff Aliperti is from Long Island, NY, where he still resides with his ten aquariums and keyboard. Cliff has blogged about classic film for many years at his site Immortal Ephemera. In 2015, he published Helen Twelvetrees, Perfect Ingenue, the first full-length biography of this often forgotten Golden Age film star. It was amid the years of writing, researching, and rewriting on this project that Cliff’s original passion for fiction writing was reawakened and he has since had short fiction published or accepted for future publication in literary journals including After Dinner Conversation, the Under Review, Fleas on the Dog, and Sheepshead Review. He has one novel in the drawer and is currently nearing completion of another.
