Author, Student Affairs Professional

Anthony Otero, a Bronx native, Syracuse University alum, Afro-Latino blogger/podcaster, and former contributor to the Huffington Post, has aspired to be a published author for most of his life.

His first book, Hanging Upside Down, is a fiction novel that explores the pressures men face after divorce, the consequences of letting good intentions go astray, and how a single turn of events can change the world as they know it. The Book of Isabel is a follow-up story that explores Louis' past while examining his present situation which is filled with questions about friendships and lost loves. His short story, "La Casita of American Heroes" is featured in the Eisner Winning Comic Book Anthology Puerto Rico Strong where all the proceeds went to the people affected by Hurricane Maria.
