Bio

Baby Anthony Kalberg | An Author is BornOn a dark and stormy night I was “born at an early age.” Since that time, my life has roared along at full throttle. Thankfully, the Good Lord blessed me with Christian parents, who instilled into me a love and appreciation for all His creations! For as the Good Book states: “If a man says, ‘I love God,’ and hates his brother, he is a liar. Because if a man does not love his brother whom he can see, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?”
I attended William Carey University in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, graduating in 1975 with a Master’s Degree in Elementary Education. That degree led to my first employment as a second grade teacher. That fun lasted five years. For the next thirty-three years, I was an Eligibility Worker at the Harrison County Department of Human Services. That fun ended when I retired in 2014.
Over the past forty years, I’ve been involved with the bustling theater scene along the Mississippi Gulf Coast. I’ve been blessed to portray an array of interesting characters: The Emcee in Cabaret, the Artful Dodger and Fagin (twice) in Oliver, Captain Andy in Showboat, Toby in Sweeney Todd, Harpagon in The Miser, Renfield in Dracula, and Scrooge in The Christmas Carol, to name just a few. I’ve designed and dressed set for numerous productions, the most noteworthy being The Little Foxes, Dracula, My Three Angels, and Tea and Sympathy, a play that I’ve directed twice.
Anthony Kalberg with Teddy BearMy theatrical endeavors led me to another venture–writing. I’ve been absorbed for many years in the creation of a book entitled A Chasing of the Wind. You can read the prologue at this site. My first book signing will be in October 24, 2014.
My life has been and will continue to be a work in progress. And as it has been said in times past: “The aim of life is to live, and to live means to be aware–joyously, drunkenly, serenely, divinely aware.” For those of you who visit this site, thank you! I hope and pray all is well for you and yours. May God bless!
