About The Founding of Cavallaro Publishing

Founded in 2020, we named our publishing company Cavallaro Publishing to honor my husband’s grandfather who immigrated from Milazzo, Sicily in the 1880’s. Soon after our engagement, Joe’s deceased grandfather—Giuseppe Vincenzo Cavallaro—made contact with me (I am a psychic medium) through a little bronze bell he used every year to bring in the New Year in Philadelphia. He gave me my first introduction to the Mummer’s Day Parade and welcomed me into the family. Much like his grandson, he is a wonderful, happy, and fun-loving soul.

About Shirl & Joe

Shirley Smolko, MBA, MSA—Publisher & Author

Ever since I can remember I have had a love affair with books. I can think of no better way to spend an afternoon (other than golfing) than to peruse the shelves of the local bookstore or library. While most of my fellow graduate students often complained about the amount of writing involved in producing research papers, I found the process enjoyable. It was a way for me to spend time alone with just me and my thoughts—and sometimes Spirit. I hope you find our current and upcoming collection of books as exciting as I do.

Joe Smolko, M.Ed.—Editor

Joe is a retired High School English Teacher. He graduated from Fordham University in 1969 with a B.A., and from the University of Delaware in 1974 with a Master of Education in Secondary Education. He enjoys spending most his days playing golf with an occasional book edit here and there. There’s been some recent talk of him possibly writing a book or two of his own soon. We’ll keep you posted!
