tonybmilanaccent

Author of novels, short stories, and poetry.  He has written screenplays and directed movies.  His work has appeared in numerous publications.  Born and raised in Puerto Rico, his native language is Spanish.  Developed an affinity for English as he discovered the worlds of literature and film.  After high school, he attended Pittsburgh Filmmakers and Carlow University in Pennsylvania, and received his Bachelor of Arts in Cinema from Columbia College-Hollywood in California.  Resided in Los Angeles for fifteen years before returning to the Pittsburgh area, where he lives with his wife and two children.

The characters of his fiction inhabit familiar and strange places—places of his early years, places he has been through, bright expanses of earth and darkened corners of a universe that remains a mystery.  People mingle with monsters and robots and apparitions, converging, crashing, going off to discover new things on their own.  His characters haunt him and give him joy.  In return, he rummages inside of his mind as often as he can, attempting to expose what is in his heart, exploring life and death and love and hate, seeing what may come from a wanderer living in a still-strange environment far from his geographic home... the musings of an islander away from an island, looking at the world with more love than contempt, wanting to shed more light than darkness upon it...
