Meet the Author

Professor Anthony Mancini, director of the journalism program of Brooklyn College, is a seasoned educator and versatile professional writer of both fiction and non-fiction works. Mancini spent his early career as a reporter and editor for 20 years at the New York Post, mostly pre-Rupert Murdoch. He started as a copy boy at age 19. He has contributed free-lance articles to many national and local newspapers and magazines. Mancini also is the author of seven novels appearing in trade hardcover and paperback editions, many of which have been reprinted in foreign lands, including Japan, Finland, Romania, Spain, France, Germany, Holland and other countries. His first novel, Minnie Santangelo's Mortal Sin, published in 1975, was a Reader's Digest condensed book selection. Another novel, Talons (1991) was a Literary Guild selection. His novel Menage was reissued in September, 2011, by Tolmitch Press on Kindle. Mancini, a native New Yorker, was born an identical twin to Italian immigrants.He is married to actress Maria Cellario. They live in Manhattan and have two grown children, Romy and Nicholas. Why does he write? As Samuel Johnson said, "None but a blockhead ever wrote except for money." Mostly, though, he writes for readers. Other reasons: I write out of masochism, because it is a curse, addiction and compulsion. And, once in a while, a pure joy.
