About Francis W. Porretto

Francis W. Porretto was born in 1952. Things went steadily downhill from there.

Fran is an engineer and fictioneer who lives on the east end of Long Island, New York. He's short, bald, homely, has bad acne and crooked teeth. His neighbors hold him personally responsible for the decline in local property values. His life is graced by one wife, two stepdaughters, two dogs, four cats, too many power tools to list, and an old ranch house furnished in Early Mesozoic style. His 13,000 volume (and growing) personal library is considered a major threat to the stability of the North American tectonic plate.

Publishing industry professionals describe Fran's novels as "Unpublishable. Horrible, but unpublishable all the same." (They don't think much of his short stories, either.) He's thought of trying bribery, but isn't sure he can afford the $3.95.

Fran's novels "Chosen One," "On Broken Wings," "Shadow Of A Sword," "The Sledgehammer Concerto," "Which Art In Hope," "Freedom's Scion," "Freedom's Fury," and "Priestesses" are also available as paperbacks, through Amazon. Check the specific pages for those books for details.

Wallow in his insane ranting on politics, culture, and faith at "Liberty's Torch:" http://bastionofliberty.blogspot.com/

Review by: Ernest Winchester on Oct. 28, 2011 :
It’s been a long time since I’ve seen anything on Smashwords by Francis Porretto, or maybe I wasn’t looking hard enough. Loved this short, sweet and somewhat confusing story. (Did she or did she not have a real problem?) I tried to backtrack to his earlier stories but ran into a strange glitch when trying to recover the Priestess story. Maybe it’s just something in my computer from the massive crash I had three weeks ago. Anyway, great short.
