Antonio Tripodi


Born in Adelaide, Australia, to Italian immigrants, Antonio Tripodi grew up believing the lies that his words weren’t worth two cents, a belief that turned writing into a tiresome nightmare. His speaking little English as a child led to difficulties in primary school and fuelled those false beliefs regarding his writing, beliefs which he overcame with the help of his love for God and creating original stories. He chose to work with a professional creative writer to rewrite the manuscript, and a mystery specialist to review, edit and proofread the manuscript for JD Series Book 1.

After finishing Year Eleven, he went on to complete a Fitter and Turner Apprenticeship, Graphic Design Degree, Advanced Diploma in Christian Ministry and now is an author. Somewhere in between, he was a sales assistant, furniture removalist, bookkeeper and maintenance.

Tripodi has loved inventing things for as long as he can remember. At forty-six, he now realises the ultimate inventions are original stories that everyone loves to read. With God’s help, he hopes to create great original stories and transport readers through factual and fictional worlds. Always working to improve his English and writing skills, Tripodi finds inspiration in the works of Anton Chekhov and F. Scott Fitzgerald.

His work on the JD Series began in the wake of his father’s untimely death from a rare cancer in August 2012. Tripodi lives in Adelaide though he enjoys traveling frequently and has visited Japan, the UK, France, Germany, Switzerland, Belgium, Italy, the US, and the Netherlands.
