Anthony Santoro was raised and educated in Melbourne's Northern suburbs. His parents are migrants - his father Italian; his mother Anglo-Indian. He has been, at times, a keen student, musician and businessman; but, always a writer and storyteller. Growing up in Melbourne's northern suburbs provided ample subject matter. For the better part, he dodged trouble. His current projects include the sequel to The Deception, titled Risk Management, and a film based upon The Deception. He is also working on another film with his brother.
