Anthony Aurisano was born and raised on Long Island, New York. He teaches high school English in Queens, so he thinks of many of his ideas while dodging drivers on the highway each morning. He was raised in a martial arts dojo and secretly wanted to be a superhero, since he realized that wasn’t an option he decided to write fantastical stories in order to live out and share those dreams with others. He has a husky pup that looks like a white-walker dire wolf. When he is not teaching and molding young minds or creating wondrous tales, he can be found hiking, practicing yoga, lifting really heavy things and putting them down, or jumping onto really tall boxes (still trying to become a superhero, obviously).
