Recently, he penned two novels that he is working on getting published. “Something that I checked off my bucket list,” said Ferris who is partnering with his brother’s independent publishing company to get his books released. 

“When the opportunity to start a TAPinto franchise fell into my lap, it hit upon my two strongest skill sets: Writing and Sales. Plus, I was ready to start the next chapter in my life,” said Ferris with a smile.

“I chose Wayne Township because of its rich history, its beauty and for the obvious need for real hyper-local news coverage.  “For most people, Wayne is a town you drive through on Route 23, 46 and 80, but for those that really know Wayne, love this town,” said Ferris.  He is focusing on articles on the town government, the school board and upcoming elections, but Ferris loves to write about the great history in Wayne, touching on Albert Payson Terhune, Dorothy Knipperberg, and Theunis Day in recent articles. “I also love to tell the stories of the great people in Wayne, so many of which are incredibly giving and kind,” he said.
