A short synopsis of the brilliantly written story with a twist, but includes all the elements of the makings of a great story. This is a genre I rarely read without the urging of friends, but after reading 'The Darkest Hour' it became another good read to add to my favorites of books for 2015. Tony is part of my networking group Stooshpr on Facebook and I contacted him because not only do I consider him a good writer but he has an amazing story that will inspire you as well; and he said he make's an amazing cup of coffee; what more do you need!
Ask Tony about his life before writing and he will say, "Where do I begin? Maybe I'll tell you about some of the jobs I've had? I've been a builder, a bouncer, worked at a garbage dump, drove a taxi, worked on board cruise ships selling underwear, and was a British Bobby for ten years or so. I've performed stand-up comedy, acted on stage and screen, and I regularly appear on radio stations all around the UK. I've made films for the BBC and written for The Guardian newspaper and Liverpool and Manchester Confidential Magazines.
A few years back I won the Peoples Choice award at the "It's Liverpool" film awards. I make amazing coffee, and spend my days looking out of windows whilst drinking it. I live just outside Liverpool, England and I am not very good at writing "about me" sections of websites. About two years ago, after a long and lonely night of driving a taxi for a living, a chicken sandwich changed my life. It's a long story, so I'll try and keep it short, but that sandwich caused me to sit up instead of falling into bed. I saw something on TV that made me ask myself a question, a simple question, just four words, but I couldn't find the answer.
So I did what writers do: I wrote. What I ended up writing became my first novel, 'The Darkest Hour,' and when Harper Collins came knocking my life changed forever. All thanks to a sandwich... makes you think doesn't it?" - Author Tony Schumacher
