About Tony

Hi, Everyone and welcome to my site!

Booksignings just in time for Christmas:

  • Saturday, November 22, 2014: Plainfield-Guilford Township Public Library, 1120 Stafford Road, Plainfield, IN, 2-4 pm. I’ll be there as a part of the Sisters in Crime Speed City Chapter group signing copies of the Hoosier Hoops & Hijinks anthology. I’ll also have copies of my own books with me to sign and sell.
  • Saturday, December 7, 2014: Indiana Author Fair, Indiana Historical Society, 450 West Ohio Street, Indianapolis, IN, 12-4 pm. The Author Fair is a great event, and I’ll be there with Brenda Stewart, my co-editor on the anthology, signing at the event. Lots of Indiana authors will be there. Come on out and buy some books for Christmas gifts!

It was fun and a privilege to serve as co-editor for HOOSIER HOOPS & HIJINKS,  an anthology of short mystery stories that involve basketball in our great Hoosier state of Indiana. My co-editor Brenda Stewart and I are really pleased with the results! Our publisher is Blue River Press, the same people who did our earlier anthology RACING CAN BE MURDER, which went on to be a finalist for Best Book of Indiana. For those of you who remember Charlotte & Francine, my amateur sleuths from “The Land Grab” in RACING, they are back for more antics in this one.

New News!

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, will be out in July, 2015. The new book continues the adventures of Francine and Charlotte, the two amateur sleuths featured in the RACING CAN BE MURDER and HOOSIER HOOPS anthologies referenced above. 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 are at work on the second book, ARSON ON THE BUCKET LIST.

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!
