About the Author:

Connecticut native Jim Alessio carefully pieced together the thrilling, mysterious life of Edna Wallace Hopper. Patience, dedication and inquisitive investigative nature lead to the whole truth. In this, Jim has found a passion for unsolved mysteries leading to future investigative book projects. 20 years of research on Miss Hopper has made him the world’s most knowledgeable expert author on the subject of her life. This first book ever on the life and times of Edna Wallace Hopper started due to a series of dreams in 1979 of an unidentified impish woman posing for an oil portrait in a clown suit followed by finding the painting in real life. Years later he met a man at the Lincoln Center who instructed the author to commence a book and musical film project just as requested by Edna Wallace Hopper in his meeting with her 26 years beforehand.

The author’s spirited and amazing connection with the subject, Edna is only part of what he has to offer his readers. His own personal witnessing of a UFO siting in West Haven, CT has lead Jim in finding other witnesses ( including one from the Roswell, NM incident) with similar experiences for a collection of true stories for another book to be published soon. Jim also had “many lives” working as a computer programmer/ analyst , a photo/tv model, an antique quilt business owner, and real estate business office manager inticing to create another book called “Brush,” a collection of facinating memoirs of brief yet personal intimate moments with famous legends such as Madonna, Michael Jackson, Paul Newman and more.

Alessio collected rare music sheets from Edna’s comedic operettas as well as numerous photographs of her. He is writing a screenplay for a musical film based on “The Eternal Flapper.”
