Me4Born in 1962, I grew up in the farm country of Delaware County in East Central Indiana. After graduating from Wes-Del High School in 1980, I tried college life at Taylor University. The school did their job, I just wasn’t very… collegey. I joined the military and enjoyed serving 10 years in the United States Navy Submarine Service. As a shipmate once said, “It’s <the sub service> the closest thing to being an astronaut I could be.”

Through the years I have worked many jobs. From deckhand on a submarine, to Armed Security Guard, Document Specialist, and author of several books.

I also enjoy raising vegetables and herbs in raised bed gardens, bantam chickens for eggs, and rabbits for meat. I continue to manage a large aquaponics system on the grounds of my church in Pensacola. I also attend the Panhandle Writers Group of Milton, Florida.

    There must be a writer gene in the Smith-Dinius side of your family and a para-normal from the Elmer Smith side–I am assuming that you are Kaye Dwayne related and if so grew up hearing Aunt Florence and family lore about esp, and things in the attic. from your far-removed also a writer kin Donna Mikels, saughter of Susan Dinius sister to Vera Lucille Smith.

    Tony has an innate ability to tell a story. Anyone whose ever heard him speak knows his voice should be used on audiobooks. I would recommend any of his books. If you don’t like to read, I’m sure you can find one of his books on tape.
