Tony Teora graduated from Rutgers University in Electrical Engineering. Besides writing novels Teora writes freelance magazine articles and pursues the life of an entrepreneur in technology. He’s designed radio control toys, worked on military communication systems, has a patent application and even did a stint as a college computer instructor. He’s lived over 10 years in Japan. Teora currently travels between Sapporo and San Diego depending on the weather.

“The Japanese culture really helped me gain different perspective on life. I’d like to think that these unique and interesting experiences are reflected in my writing.”

On life: “The world is filled with too much trouble to take it seriously. Don’t take life too seriously because the irony of life is that none of us will get out of it alive. It’s why I add a bit comedy to my writing. Life is filled comedy.”
