Fred Tribuzzo is a professional pilot who has flown aircraft from the Piper J-3 Cub to the fastest corporate jet ever made—the Citation Ten. Currently flying a Boeing 737 Business Jet, his trips can range from thirty minutes to ten hours. It was on the far side of the world that he wrote Saint Nick.

Fred has also written two novels, Mock Court, a legal thriller, and Giants on the Horizon, a tribute to the Greatest Generation.

In another life Fred played electric bass for several groups, including the Numbers Band from northeastern Ohio, performing on four of the band’s CDs.

In 1986 he received a fellowship from the Ohio Arts Council for piano, oboe and string compositions.
