Italo Michael Taranto entered this world on the 12th December 1967, born of a Sicilian father and an Afrikaans mother in Swaziland, a small landlocked country to the north-east of South Africa. Swaziland shares its Eastern border with Mozambique. The balance of this small country is surrounded by the South African province of Mpumalanga, and its most southerly border lies against the South African coastal province of Kwa-Zulu Natal.
Italo spent the first six years of his life living in Swaziland. Soon after Swaziland gained its Independence the family moved up to Johannesburg South Africa for the purpose, he later learned, of a better education. Having been brought up in a well-to-do, middle class suburban family home, Italo’s life took an unforeseen dive into a life of drugs, motorcycle gangs, chronic alcoholism, criminal activity and lascivious sexual immorality. He suffered an accident which should have killed him, or at the least, should have ended his freedom and days as a normal member of society, and consigned him to a life behind bars on charges of first degree murder. The reason it didn’t forms the main thread of his story.
Italo finished writing the final draft of this book on the 28th of May 2012. Truth House Publishing received his manuscript on the 30th. Twelve days later, on the 11th June 2012, Italo died, having completed what he knew to be his assignment from God.
