Something About Me and My Book:
Anthony S. Policastro has been writing all his life.
The publication of his first novel is the pinnacle of his work having previously published articles in The New York Times, American Photographer and other national, regional, and local publications.
Policastro was the former editor-in-chief of Carolina Style magazine, a regional lifestyle publication similar to Southern Living magazine. He was a former journalist, photographer, and webmaster.
The author’s background is in technology, business intelligence, and communications. He is the former senior business analyst for Lulu.com, the largest do-it-yourself publisher in the world headquartered in Raleigh, NC.
A member of the Backspace writers group, he has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Creative Writing and a BA in American Studies both from Penn State University.
His short essay on “What does it mean to be an American family” won in the Borders books Gather.com contest to promote the movie and book, Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri.
He currently writes a blog with Michael Neff, creator and editor of the Webdelsol and Algonkian websites, about writers’ issues called The Writer’s Edge. Policastro and Neff have been referred to as the Ebert and Roeper of the literary scene with their point/counterpoint posts.
He has two BA degrees - one in Creative Writing, and another in American Studies from Penn State University, both of which have greatly enhanced his writing career.
Born in New Jersey, he now lives in Raleigh, North Carolina with his wife. He has two sons and a daughter.
