The Author - Tony originally qualified as a professional Chartered Design Engineer, and built up a research and development company in Kent, England, specializing in such unusually varied projects as 30000C carbon processing furnaces, liquefied helium gas pipelines, nuclear protection equipment and low temperature surgery instrumentation. The latter and its worldwide commercial success led to him being awarded an MBE by the Queen. Later, he accepted the position of Chief European Executive of an American Company specializing in microbiological analysis instrumentation and computer related products. Based first in Switzerland, and later in the Channel Island of Guernsey, he built up a group of related marketing and manufacturing companies and agencies, all across Europe.
Now retired and living with his Viennese wife, partly in Austria and also in the Spanish Canary Island of Tenerife, he is writing mostly science fiction and macabre stories available in various collections (eBooks and Paperbacks) including three volumes of TENERIFE TALL TALES, FUTURE REASSURED, FUTURE UNCERTAIN, MACABRE TALES and TALL SF TALES FOR TEENS, all available via the Internet and various outlets, including AMAZON, BARNES & NOBLE etc. He has also just completed his first quirky SF action novel, POINTS OF VIEW, aimed at the fast growing Young Adults market.
