About Anthony

I am the author of The Write Thing, Witches of the Deep South, and my newest novel, Where He Lay Down (available 4/22/17).

I am the host of the web show Win(e)ding Down with Anthony. I also serve as the executive producer, head writer, and star of the forthcoming sitcom The Anthony Project. Additionally, I’m the publisher and CEO of Black Magic Media, a small press and production company.

I serve as a chairman for Pride Houston and am currently a student at Full Sail University, where I am finishing my BFA in Creative Writing. I hosted the American Writers and Writing Programs offsite event Yas Queen: Out of the Margins, a reading event for LGBT, POC, and women writers. I can be seen singing in bars on karaoke nights, where he I am probably also getting drunk. I write from my home in Houston.
