Anthony Gillis


The child of hippie adventurer parents, I lived on my father's sailboat, an island off the coast of Costa Rica, a converted school bus, and a ramshackle house in Ft. Lauderdale with a leaky roof and a sand yard, before settling down to something resembling a normal childhood. Something in all that made me decide to enlist and serve in the United States Air Force, and then earn a bachelor's degree in history and an MBA.

Now, I'm putting my muse to work, and I hope you enjoy the results!

Smashwords book reviews by Anthony Gillis

  • Empire (In Her Name: Redemption, Book 1) on June 07, 2012

    An amazing read! The hero, Reza Gard, comes of age in the midst of an interstellar war between humanity and the warlike Kreelan Empire. It takes some surprising turns which I will leave to the reader to discover, but will say that the Kreelans are simultaneously very alien and yet comprehensible, even sympathetic. This one grabbed my attention immediately and kept it. I look forward to reading the next two books in the trilogy!
