Tony Di Giosia

Biography

I'm inspired by the outdoors, history and a good story - particularly historical fiction, folk tales, tall tales and other short stories that come from storytelling tradition. My love of short fiction comes from the stories my grandfather told me as a child. My own children now inspire me to continue to find wonder in their boundless imaginations.
