Tony’s grandpa never graduated high school. He retired from a steel mill in the mid-70s. He was uneducated, but a voracious reader. As a kid, Tony would go through his bookshelves of musty paperback sci-fi novels, pulling Piers Anthony and Isaac Asimov off shelf and promising to bring them back. He was fascinated by robots that could think and act like people. What happened when they died?
For Tony, writing has become a thought experiment that explores human nature and possibilities. What makes us human? What is the true nature of the universe?
He’s also a big fan of plot twists.
