Here’s information on some of the authors we work with often. It’s an eclectic mix of talented people — and we enjoy editing their work!
DAVID ANTOCCI is a noted wordsmith, blogger and author. His work can be read regularly on the Worcester Telegram and Gazette website where he has spent many years writing about the trials and tribulations of being a real life Mr. Mom. While his first love is music, he has put down the guitar in recent years in order to pour his passion into writing… and the gentle tap of the keys on his laptop are much less disruptive late at night when the children are sleeping. The ESCAPE books are his first published foray into fiction. He lives in New England with his beautiful wife and children. Find out more at antocci.com.

In his late twenties, Jerry moved to Jamaica to write his first book. While there, he met, fell in love, and married a native, Nicola.
