Tony Brasunas grew up at Claymont, an intentional spiritual community in West Virginia. He attended a large public high school in Atlanta and graduated from a small New England college.
A nonpartisan freelance journalist, his writings have been published in both corporate and independent media. Brasunas was censored for covering the 2016 Democratic primary from the wrong perspective. Recounting that experience and much more, Red, White & Blind, his second book, exposes the truth about disinformation in the American media and plots a brave path forward for media consciousness in a time of political polarization.
Double Happiness, his first book, won Best Memoir at the Paris Book Festival, ForeWord Travel Book of the Year Silver Winner, and Best Travelogue at the Indie Excellence Book Awards.
When he's not writing, he's developing software, playing soccer or guitar, or traveling in a faraway land. He lives in Sebastopol, California, with his wife, son, and two dozen apple trees.
