Welcome to the online home of writers Parker Francis and Victor DiGenti. As a matter of full disclosure, both writers are one and the same. I write gritty mysteries, thrillers, and short stories using the pen name Parker Francis. Parker is the author of the award-winning Quint Mitchell Mystery series, which includes MATANZAS BAY, BRING DOWN THE FURIES, and HURRICANE ISLAND. He’s also penned the short story collection GHOSTLY WHISPERS, SECRET VOICES, and the novella BLUE CRABS AT MIDNIGHT. The short story, The Strange Case of Lord Byron’s Lover, was originally part of the anthology THE PROMETHEUS SAGA and is now included in the GHOSTLY WHISPERS collection.
My contribution to THE LIGHT FANTASTIC is a broad comic retelling of Raymond Chandler’s classic hard-boiled Philip Marlowe caper, Farewell, My Lovely. My tale is set in the future and brings together a beautiful multiverse criminal, a heartbroken pizza baron, and a dog named Pepperoni. All in a day’s work in the life of Slip-Sliding government agent Marlon Phillips.
Writing as Victor DiGenti, I first wrote the Windrusher trilogy, before switching personas to write as Parker Francis. Today, I also work as a biographer, ghostwriter, and publisher with my publishing imprint, Windrusher Hall Press. I’ve helped many people follow their dreams to have their life stories written or their books published. In future months, this website will undergo a change to better illustrate the writing achievements of Parker and Victor, as well as the services offered by Windrusher Hall Press. In the meantime, check out all of my books on my book page and on Amazon.
