Tony Alonzi

I'd describe myself as a mezzo - extrovert, lover of music, golf, my daughters, a good friend, the fermented grape, the original SNL, the written word and one woman. At times irreverent with a droll sense of humor and handy around the house.

The consensus is that I am from this solar system, possibly Mars, however my earliest memories place me in the West Virginia panhandle. I was born in Steubenville, OH, and grew up in Weirton, WV. Maturity came along in small doses - what can I say, it's a process.

As a kid, I became fascinated with The Tower Treasure and it turned me on to the Hardy Boys mysteries. Their adventures opened the door to John D. McDonald, David Baldacci, Nelson DeMille, Stieg Larssen, Carl Hiaasen and two dozen other fiction writers that followed, some popular, some not. The Hardy Boys planted the early desire to create my own stories. That ardor, although dormant, never left me. Time has granted me the opportunity to breathe life into imperfect characters, each with a weird twist. The result is the Stone Chronicles series. I hope you will enjoy reading them as much as I've enjoyed crafting them.
