Tony Faggioli was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He graduated from the University of Southern California, where he majored in Public Administration and was chosen to intern at The White House. After college, he transitioned to corporate America before deciding to start his own business. One day, he realized that nothing brought him anywhere near the amount of joy as the writing he did from grade school all the way through high school. So, at age 35, he returned to school and rekindled his passion. He's now written four novels (listed below) and begun his fifth. He’s married, with two children, and lives in Los Angeles, California.
