Anthony Sciarratta was born in Maspeth, New York, to Italian-American parents. Being very nostalgic, Anthony takes great pride in labeling himself an old soul. His love for classic films, music, and literature shows through his work. Anthony wrote Finding Forever over a four-month period. Finding Forever is authentic to the 1970s, an iconic era in American history. Finding Forever was originally self-published through Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing, where Anthony received exposure for his work and managed to build a personal brand. His success story as such a young writer is inspirational to all aspiring young writers and self-published authors.
