Anthony Apruzzese has always appreciated weaving a great tale, and fortunately he has never had a lack of experiences from which to draw upon while conveying his thoughts to paper. Born and raised in Hudson County, New Jersey, there was hardly a scarcity of the stereotypical “hard-edge, smooth-talking, diamond-in-the-rough” character types to whom he frequently refers when creating imaginative and engaging personalities, rife with realism. More often than not, Apruzzese draws upon many of the very same locations he had known and frequented as a youth on the streets of north Jersey and utilizes them as believable and convincing backdrops to his narratives.
