Anthony Flacco - Ghostwriter

Seattle, WA, USA

My writing is character-based. I stress the importance of empathy in deepening a story's worldview and being the secret to its power.

I have the honor of being a NYT Bestselling author ("Impossible Odds") and an International Bestseller ("Tiny Dancer"). I am also proud of the fact that I have never blown a deadline. Not one time. My writing is character-based and my touchstone is empathy. You can find a complete scroll of my many books on my website.

I would rather talk about what happened to you in this life than what has happened to me, because what has happened to me has given me deep appreciation for being able to peer out at the world through the eyes of others. Tell me about you, about the bursts of light and the pits of anger along your journey.
