About Tony

Hi, Everyone and welcome to my site!

I’ll be representing Elizabeth Perona (my daughter Liz Dombrosky and I write under this name) at the Malice Domestic mystery conference April 29 and 30. Look for me there! I’m on a panel called “Group Dynamics: Sharing Detection” with Lisa Q. Mathews, Janet Finsilver, Debra H. Goldstein, and Tracy Kiely, on Saturday at 10:00. The panel is moderated by the Anthony-nominated Dru Ann Love. Should be an excellent panel!

Coming July 6!

Midnight Ink has signed my daughter Liz Dombrosky and me to a three-book contract. As a father/daughter team, we write under the name “Elizabeth Perona,” and our first novel, MURDER ON THE BUCKET LIST, is out in bookstores. MOBL continues the adventures of Francine and Charlotte, the two amateur sleuths featured in my short stories in the RACING CAN BE MURDER and HOOSIER HOOPS anthologies. The women are trying to complete the items on their bucket lists but can’t help stumbling over dead bodies. I am so excited to be working with Liz on this. We’ve finished book #2, MURDER UNDER THE COVERED BRIDGE, and are at work on third in the series.

A Little About Me:

My name is Tony Perona, and I’ve been a writer for as long as I can remember, but I first became a mystery author in December, 2002, when Five Star published my novel Second Advent, the first in the Nick Bertetto mystery series. You can learn about the series and more by clicking on the Novels & Books button.

Anyway, please look around the site.

Thanks for visiting!
