Born and raised in Marion, Ohio, in the middle decades of the twentieth century, Vincent Nicolosi grew up in an era when Harding lore, like Indian lore, was still in the air. History and legends lingered on rumours too. These he absorbed from stories told by those who knew and mixed with Warren and Florence Harding, who shook hands with Babe Ruth, dined with Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks, exchanged points of view with Henry Ford, and with those who laboured to build the town, run the railroads, and construct the steam shovels that dug the Panama Canal. Nicolosi's own life has led him to far-flung places including Latin America and, years ago, the mountains of northern Nicaragua. He now lives in the eastern United States.
