Like Rudy Giuliani, I have had a checkered romantic life. (Maybe that’s why I have sympathy for him.) Can’t say I’m exactly proud of it, but it has provided me with fodder for fiction writing. (And some fun … and embarrassing … memories, I admit). But for well over a decade now I have been married to the same woman, Sheryl Longin, and those years have been the best of my life. She is my lover, best friend and all the other clichés you can add to it… including this one: Happy Valentine’s Day, Sheryl! I love you!
