Born in the heart of St. Louis, Missouri, the third of six children, and the oldest boy, Anthony was
introduced to Christianity at an early age. Going to Bible study, Sunday School, and church was a weekly, nonnegotiable thing. As a result, it had a tremendous impact on him, and it shaped the direction of his life. Bible stories coupled with an overactive imagination played a key role in his love for writing. He began writing creatively almost as soon as he was able to write. He has written poems, stories, plays, a soap opera and anything that he could lend his imagination, creativity, heart, and pen to.
