The Minstrel Boy is the signature tune of Patrick Aloysious Quincannon, the most decorated firefighter on the New York City Fire Department. Quincannon has made the unprecedented move of transferring from an elite Rescue company to finish out his 40-year career in an Engine company commanded by his friend, Mike Shannon. He becomes the spiritual leader of Engine Company 333 through good and bad times, and through the most demanding summer of the FDNY’s 136-year history, as a legend, a character, but above all a firefighter.

The Minstrel Boy is available as an eBook from Barnes & Noble and Amazon, among other platforms.  It is currently available in print (soft cover), from B&N and Amazon.
