Bruno Cocorocchio was born in 1951 in a small Italian town south-east of Rome. In search of a better life for their children, his parents emigrated to Canada in 1964. In 1974, Bruno graduated with a Bachelor of Applied Science in Electrical Engineering from the University of Toronto.
From graduation to retirement, a span of roughly fifty years, Bruno devoted much effort to the technical discipline for which he had trained while simultaneously developing writing skills. He took courses in scriptwriting and film-making, as well as, creative, non-fiction and memoir writing at Ryerson University, the University of Toronto and the University of Victoria.
Currently, Bruno and his wife, Sandra Moffat, live happily in Sidney by the sea, on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada.
