Francis DiPietro is blaringly insane. His current whereabouts are unknown, due to a faulty tracking tag. He is also one of the original members of AuthorsDen.

Background Information

Influences: William Seward Burroughs (for style), Roger Zelazny (for first-person prose), Robert Ervin Howard (for pure storytelling), Neil Peart, Riothamus, myth, humor, the ironies of human machination (which often cause one to go under the influence, yet often there is wisdom gained), lighthouses, solitude, and the quest for a life free from appointments and schedules.


Two Mayor's Citations for work in creative writing and photojournalism, Nicholl Fellowship nominee for screenwriting, James Tiptree Award nominee for prose, Marquis Who's Who in America, People to People Ambassador to China, Harvard mentorship scholarship, yadda yadda...are these things what matters? Of course not. I wish I could say that I am a good person in the sense of my contribution to the world. Maybe one day the saying will honor me by having a faint ring of truth.

Additional Information

I try to write a novel a year, in addition to shorter works. I also enjoy creating music, and have composed and performed over 600 original songs (with no audience to play them to, it's easy to move on to the next Early April of 2005 has seen me fortunate enough to have the # 1 ranked progressive rock song download on, and the # 1 Indie download of all-time. I've included the AP/UPI press release for that in my News section, as well as a link below, and an exclusive AuthorsDen download of the song. New and upcoming books for 2006 & 2007: Veteran of the Ardennes, Swarm of Five, Groveling Music, Soldier of the Ardennes, The Confessioner's Ghost, The Mandrake SongBook.
