Antonio Urias is a New Yorker born and bred. He was raised on a steady diet of grapes and books, often fantasy, and spent an inordinate amount of time telling stories, often involving cowboys. Not much has changed in the intervening years. He still loves grapes. He still loves fantasy. And he's still telling stories, though these days there are less cowboys and more magic. He can sometimes be found at his blog at http://antoniourias.wordpress.com.
