Tony is the founder of City Fiction and offered a Writing Mentorship prize in the 2020 Awards and is now mentoring Billy Wittenberg towards publishing his book next spring. Tony was thrilled to find Billy and his book and is offering another Writing Mentorship in the 2021 Awards.
Tony spent over twenty years in the City of London as a corporate financier building St Helen’s Capital into a successful PLUS Markets advisory firm. He is a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Bankers, which recognized his articles on leasing and instalment credit for various financial magazines.
Tony has written a number of financial books. He has been chairman of a Conservative Association and a Bedfordshire County Councillor.
He has written seven DCI Sarah Rudd detective books and created the Novella Nostalgia series.
As a judge I want to discover those budding authors who can tell a tale. This is done by creating riveting characters. In this industry the genuine story tellers are like gold dust.
Tony, through City Fiction, will offer one winning fiction writer the chance to work with him as their editor and then to achieve the standards to have the book published on Amazon by City Fiction. It will be very hard work yet very rewarding!
