"Goodness and evil reside in the same bed lying side by side in contrast, yet are inseparable because they are and always shall be one and the same."
Sitting atop of the Fairfax Hotel is a gargoyle that some say wields mythical power to grant success, but not without a substantial price. Yet others claim it is simply a stone decoration misinterpreted by man's foolishness and greed for power. Which should we believe?
Success comes at a cost no matter how it is achieved whether through the act of making simple choices or committing murder. It is a dilemma that defines who or what we are. Sam Blythe has reached that moment in his life where he has to make that choice and decide what sacrifices he is willing to live with.
But the sudden changes in Sam's life has thrust him into his own novel where his characters are taking on the personages of the people that have mysteriously entered his life. Is his own book showing him what he should do or is it something else? Is this new direction of his own choosing or are these thoughts are not his own and he is a pawn in a much bigger game as he faces The Evil from Above.

About the Author
A longtime favorite for Tony is the old style of "space opera" type stories which is the center of his two book series: Alien Deception and Alien Revelation. The series deals with an alien organization that has infiltrated the American political system. The series runs the gauntlet from humorous to deadly serious as a young man and woman search for answers.
Coven is about: Little towns and their secrets; a guilty pleasure for some and a harsh reality for others. Witches have secretly been in control of the town council for years and the town has prospered...until now. As they search for the truth behind the mysterious death of one of their shop owners, they uncover disturbing secrets about an ostracized witch and their own coven leader, making it unclear which one may have been using black magic to murder.
In addition, Tony has a collection of short stories, Alien and Satanic Creatures Wanted: Humans Need Not Apply. He also has numerous other short stories in various anthologies.
Tony retired from the United States Navy in 2001 after twenty-three years of service. He and his family currently reside in Portsmouth, Virginia. While continuing to write, Tony teaches at Old Dominion University and Saint Leo University.
