Big Apple Fame and Fortune
In the February 1994 issue of Irish America (available at HighBeam), I published the story of John J. Fitz Gerald and the Big Apple. It was the only periodical that (then and now) accepted my work. I received $100.

I have received no other money.

I have received no awards.
