Tony Masero is an internationally known Illustrator, who is best known for the Western covers he created. Of the many series he worked on he is particularly known for the two best selling and long running Western series for George G Gilman's Edge and Steele characters, where he painted most of the covers for the European market. Tony originally trained as a Graphic Designer in London and worked in the design field before taking up Illustration. After a successful career in Illustration he turned to writing and now often uses his earlier skills to create the design and artwork for his own book jackets. During a long career his artwork has fronted many popular books in different genres but his love of Westerns arose out of the research necessary to complete his artwork and in the same way he often creates his novels around some elements of historical fact. Tony has two sons and a daughter and now lives with his wife, Diana in Portugal.
