It was my distinct pleasure to present Antonio Simon, Jr. in this literary journey. And so it began something like this:
Antonio Simon, Jr. is a lawyer and award-winning author of several books. His debut to authorship won three awards in its first year. In 2014 he was the first-place recipient of the prestigious Royal Palm Literary Award for excellence in writing. All told, Mr. Simon has written four books, collaborated on two, and published over a dozen short stories. Mr. Simon holds two Bachelor of Arts degrees from the University of Miami, in the subjects of political science and history. He earned his Juris Doctorate from Saint Thomas University’s School of Law. He is a full time practicing attorney, author, historian, husband, father and my amazing son (in law); a term I use loosely as I consider him a son.
The introduction was followed by carefully selected unique juicy bites from Miami's history from the point of view of Antonio Simon, Jr.,the story teller. His execution in sharing information regarding little known or unspoken tales of our cities were as engaging as personal to many who have lived in south Florida for years. He made the topics educational and dramatic with a spot of humor sprinkled onto his deliveries. In all, Mr. Simon gave everyone just enough information to want to read more. Miami is Missing is a must read; all copies in-house were sold out.
