Who are you and where did you come from?
I am Tony Acree. Where did I come from? We would have to go back to either Adam and Eve or the Big Bang, depending on your beliefs. More recently, I am the son of the greatest mother to have ever lived, Nancy D. I come from a long line of oral story tellers. I happen to be the first one to write all the lies down.

Where do you want to be in 10 years?
Standing on the first tee at Pebble Beach or Augusta, with Sandra Bullock and Stana Katic in the crowd. If my wife is reading this, then the answer would be the same, sans the two actresses. Just sayin'.

What is the biggest mistake you've made in your life?
I should have said yes when the San Diego Chicken offered me a job after watching me do my show as Fair Bear, the mascot of the Kentucky State Fair. He needed another chicken to do shows and despite how dumb this sounds, if I could go back in time, I would say "yes".

What would you do for a Klondike bar?
Hmmm. Anything short of grand larceny. I might not fly to Mars and back. Might have to put no Mars trip in the small print.

I know this answer is not the most original: but my children. They help keep my imagination young.

Best Elevator Pitch For Latest Book. 300 words or less
The Speaker is full of action, dark humor and romance. My next novel is akin to a collision of Die Hard and Stephen King. In book 3 of the Victor McCain thrillers, Victor finds fighting inner demons may prove more difficult than fighting the real thing.
