James Valentino is a graduate of Clear Creek High School in League City, Texas, born and raised three blocks from the shore of Galveston Bay. He spent many years on that very same bay as a commercial fisherman as captain of the John Alvin and Ruffian as well as seafood wholesaler, selling oysters and shrimp to processors in Texas and elsewhere. In 2007 he returned to a lost but not forgotten love, history, when she called him to her bosom. Mr. Valentino completed his Master’s Degree in 2011 and since has taught American History at three community colleges in the Houston-Galveston area. Professor Valentino has written three self-published works. Two are strictly history driven, though one is a book of nine tales of life on Galveston Bay, several of which were handed down from his father. He now lives in Bayview, Texas with his wife Kelly, daughter Reagan, and loyal Welsh corgi Cedric.
