TONY PRESS tries to pay attention. Sometimes he does. His story collection CROSSING THE LINES appeared in 2016 {Big Table}He has  two Pushcart nominations but no website. Hot chocolate remains a driving force for him, whether in Oaxaca, Mexico, or Bristol, England, or his local cafe in Brisbane, California.
