Exploring the complexity of human interaction, and entertaining you with it.
A chat with a most interesting Cambridgeshire author.
Finding someone a delight on first meeting is quite a rare thing, but I was fortunate to spend a morning drinking coffee and chatting with Tony Marturano recently. Tony is an author, he is also a photographer and founder of a tech company, and has been a radio presenter and recorded singer. He was born in Cambridgeshire, is of Italian descent and whilst he has travelled widely and lived in Italy during his youth, he lives with us here in Huntingdonshire still.
What is so enjoyable about time spent with Tony is that he is erudite, intelligent and very candid. It is clear that he is an insightful person, and this undoubtedly goes hand in hand with the interest in psychology that he developed in his teenage years. Some of his own relationship experiences became the content of his book ‘Coming Up For Air’ but this is no autobiography, or not solely. Having already begun talking with people about their lives and relationships as a young man, Tony developed this in a more methodical way for ‘Coming Up For Air,’ interviewing many people in the style of a scientific study. These people’s stories became the book.
Tony has also written the supernatural thriller ‘Unspeakable,’ an action thriller ‘NIMBUS Hell on Earth’ and the psychological thriller ‘Psychosis.’ I have read ‘Psychosis’ and it definitely was thrilling! It was excellent on all kinds of levels; sinister, intriguing, with a continually twisting plot, the thrills are so unexpected. There is compassion though as well, for the precariousness of the human condition, the power and also the weakness of the human mind. And this is where the warm and concerned character of Tony Marturano shines on his writing. Quietly working in the dark hours before the dawn, this perceptive writer is crafting books that will inspire as well as entertain you.
All Tony's books can be purchased from Amazon or via Tony's website. There is a fascinating blog on the website too, so well worth a visit.
