About Anthony Dias Souza

I was born Anthony Dias Souza (aka Leroy Dumont) in 1935 at Ahualoa, Hamakua, Hawaii. I attended Honokaa Elementary School on the Island of Hawaii, Saint Patrick's School, Kaimuki, Oahu, Hawaii, graduated Saint Louis College, Kaimuki, Oahu, Hawaii (now called Chaminade College). Later, I attended Yale University Institute of Far Eastern Studies courtesy of the United States Government and served in U.S. intelligence service in the Pacific/Far Eastern Theater for three and a half years.

Upon returning stateside, I further pursued my education in southern California majoring in psychology and law. I further served as special liaison for Los Angeles area congressman and as area coordinator for the mayor of Los Angeles. During this period, I was the editor and publisher of The Harbor Alternative - a Los Angeles Harbor region bi-monthly community newspaper and a partner in a public relations firm, primarily geared to political campaigns but also organized and staged rock concerts in the region including the calamitous seven-day California Music Faire. Now retired, I reside in Santa Cruz County, California and devote my time to research and writing. I have published 15 novels under my pen name Leroy Dumont.
