More About the Author

During the day, I'm a horticulturist. While I've spent much of my career designing landscapes or diagnosing dying plants, I've always been a storyteller. My writing career began with magazine columns, landscape design textbooks, and a gardening column at the Post and Courier (Charleston, SC). However, I've always fancied fiction.

My grandpa never graduated high school. He retired from a steel mill in the mid-70s. He was uneducated, but he was a voracious reader. I remember going through his bookshelves of paperback sci-fi novels, smelling musty old paper, pulling Piers Anthony and Isaac Asimov off shelf and promising to bring them back. I was fascinated by robots that could think and act like people. What happened when they died?

I'm a cynical reader. I demand the writer sweep me into his/her story and carry me to the end. I'd rather sail a boat than climb a mountain. That's the sort of stuff I want to write, not the assigned reading we got in school. I want to create stories that kept you up late.

Having a story unfold inside your head is an experience different than reading. You connect with characters in a deeper, more meaningful way. You feel them, empathize with them, cheer for them and even mourn. The challenge is to get the reader to experience the same thing, even if it's only a fraction of what the writer feels. Not so easy.

In 2008, I won the South Carolina Fiction Open with Four Letter Words, a short story inspired by my grandfather and Alzheimer's Disease. My first step as a novelist began when I developed a story to encourage my young son to read. This story became The Socket Greeny Saga. Socket tapped into my lifetime fascination with consciousness and identity, but this character does it from a young adult's struggle with his place in the world.

After Socket, I thought I was done with fiction. But then the ideas kept coming, and I kept writing. Most of my work investigates the human condition and the meaning of life, but not in ordinary fashion. About half of my work is Young Adult (Socket Greeny, Claus, Foreverland) because it speaks to that age of indecision and the struggle with identity. But I like to venture into adult fiction (Halfskin, Drayton) so I can cuss. Either way, I like to be entertaining.

And I'm a big fan of plot twists.

HASH(0x99bd90cc) out of 5 stars You'll never forget Flury! 15 Nov. 2014
By H. White - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I enjoyed Flury. It's a book that transcends age limitations. It's not an adult book or a kid's book. I'm 72 years and I loved this book! It's a wonderful Christmas story that is sure to become a classic. It contains a bully to hate, an unhappy boy to love, an overly strict Grandma who is older than she looks. A mystery has to be solved. A giant steals into the story.

Mr. Bertauski is famous for writing compelling Christmas stories. He has a unique outlook on life. His characters are not in the usual mold. Who is Nog? Or more to the point, what is Nog? "Trust," he said, "is essential. Power," he said, "is intoxicating." But how Is Oliver supposed to trust ANYONE around him when they all are hiding something from him? The JOURNEY OF A SNOWMAN is a delightful trip to the North Pole!

HASH(0x99bd94d4) out of 5 stars Flury is another wonderful North Pole tale 15 Nov. 2014
By Far Left Texas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
First there was Claus, Tony Bertauski's 2012 Christmas tale - a FANTASTIC book, one I will read annually. Then in 2013 Tony gave us Jack, a much darker tale, as a holiday read.

And 2014 brings us Flury, a holiday story every bit as wonderful as Claus.

Flury is the tale of Oliver who lives with his overbearing grandmother. "Olivah" is what she calls him. Her rules are arcane and strict and she drives a car that doesn't leave tracks in the snow. Wooden orbs with intricate carvings and a hidden locker with journals written long ago are found in the garage that has a lock that keeps everybody but Oliver out. The forbidden journals bring Olivah to explore who Malcolm Toye was and who his grandmother really is; because there's more to the overbearing matriarch of the house than meets the eye.

Flury: Journey of a Snowman is an amazing read. If you loved Claus: Legend of the Fat Man like I did, you have to read Flury. Even though it's not set in the North Pole, the North Pole of Claus is an important part of the story.

I received an advance reading copy of Flury last month (Thanks Tony!!) with a request for an honest review.

HASH(0x99bd954c) out of 5 stars Good Mystery and Fantasy 16 Nov. 2014
By Sheyshey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Flury drew me in to its mysteries from the get go. Olivers quest for the truth is thwarted by his grandmother throughout the story when he discovers a mysterious journal, a locked door and a wooden orb that seems to belong to him - even though he has never seen it before. Along with his very first girlfriend, Oliver is able to uncover the truth about his family's past - at a cost. The books ending was very satisfying and wrapped most things up.

Flury also provided an in depth back story for Claus:Legend of the Fat Man. One thing bothered me though - why his grandmother was so cruel to him and not to his obnoxious cousins?

I cannot wait for Mr. Bertauski's next novel. His books (Claus,Jack, and Flury) follow a similar storyline but are stories that can stand by themselves. I encourage to read the entire series and then move on to his other offerings like The Annihilation of Foreverland if enjoy fantasy.

HASH(0x99bd92f4) out of 5 stars Another winner from Tony! 15 Nov. 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
First Claus, it makes you believe all over again.

Jack, who makes you hope and wish for good things.

Now? Tony brings us Flury! Another amazing tale of hope and fairy tale.

I fell in love with Oliver and his Mom right away, and they just made this story real and loveable.

This is a simple short review, plain and simple, go buy this book (and the other 2 as well if you haven't yet).

Tony is an AMAZING story teller, there is no one better to whisk you away into a world of the unbelievable but so believable at the same time.

I will never leave this world, it is my second home now and I thank Tony every chance I get!!

I received an advanced copy for loving his other books so much and for writing a review. Thank you so much Tony!!!

HASH(0x99bd9a14) out of 5 stars The Best Holiday Series! 7 Feb. 2015
By Lauren(Mommabear) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book was a little harder to read than the previous book in the series, but I was joyful nonetheless. I sunk into the book and felt like I was there. I was anxious when something was happening, and sad when other things happened. I still think this is one of my favorite series and I look forward to the next book. I look forward to Tony's books every year!
