Tony Del Degan
Tony was born to a mother skilled in english and writing, and a father who possessed a passion for photography and technical skills. All his life, he was immersed in the world of capturing images and telling stories through both visual and written mediums. When he was young, eight perhaps, he made his first film with his brother: a terrible mess with a royalty-free heavy metal soundtrack. It was the one experience that sparked his love of film: a love that continued to develop during his elementary and middle school years.
While attending middle school, he decided to begin writing short films, shooting and directing them with the help of his brother and his father. Gandersphere films was created, and with it, an entourage of short movies. That was when Tony wanted to begin writing a High Fantasy series, originally starting it as a screenplay for a television show. His father told him instead to write a novel, as a screenplay would likely go nowhere for many years, so he set off to write his first real book.
During the process of writing, he gained knowledge that he had previously never possessed in regards to story writing and structure. The first draft was a mess, so he wrote it again, then again, until he learned from his mistakes and finished the final manuscript.
He is planning three more novels in the Plight of Steel series, the last being a prequel taking place ages before the events of the first book. Alongside it, he is writing Science-fiction as well as historical fiction stories, both plays and novels.
