Welcome to Tales and Whales Publishing!


This page was last updated on 20 January 2016. This website will be closed soon but I'm switching this info over to my personal site at Noonie Fortin.


Having been New York born,  a Firefighter/EMT, and a Veteran I want to show my support for all those affected by the events  11 September 2001.

Whenever I am home I raise my Colors. Following the World Trade Center and Pentagon attacks a photo appeared in many places of the firefighters raising the Colors at what has come to be called Ground Zero in NYC. Thomas E. Franklin, staff photographer for "The Record" in Bergen County, NJ took this amazing photo and I want to post it here so I hope I don't get into any trouble for doing so. This photo has certainly captured their patriotism.
