Meet the Author
After a twenty year separation due to the Great Depression and World War II, Antonio Commisso’s parents finally reunited in Albany, New York in 1948. Two years later he was born. He was the last of five children which included a twenty year gap between him and his next oldest brother. His father had pioneered his way into America and with the help of his family, Antonio’s two older brothers went into business in the mid 1950’s. He grew up learning how to balance strong, family values with good business sense.
He received an Associate’s degree in Hotel Management from Paul Smith College in 1970. After graduation, he worked for various hotel corporations before branching out into another family venture in 1979. He owned and operated Anthony’s Park Plaza, a full service restaurant directly across from the Capital building in Albany, NY. Politicians, lobbyists, journalists, and judges made up the bulk of his clientele.
After fifteen years, the family decided to sell the restaurant for various reasons.
In 1995 he relocated to Naples, Florida where he works part time and writes. SILENT PARTNER is his first work of fiction with two more books near completion.
