About Me

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


Fran is a fictioneer and commentator 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, three dogs, three 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 $3.50.


Fran's novels 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. And of course, write to him, on whatever subject tickles your fancy, at morelonhouse@optonline.net
