Born in Philadelphia, Joe DiFrancesco first began writing a few years into a long stint in the Philadelphia Fire Department. What started out as simple escapism eventually morphed into an unwavering obsession for storytelling. Having always possessed a wild imagination, coupled with a knack for telling tales, his insights into the human condition while an inner city paramedic seemed to complete the needed "chemical process" within him to become a writer. To date he has written several screenplays, and his first film, The Mourning After, which he both wrote and directed, won for best featurette in the 2006 Delaware Valley Film Festival.
His interests are: good movies, great books, music which stirs the soul, art that makes you shut up a minute, architecture that strains the neck, oaky red wine, late night conversations regarding the unknown, and spending time with his wife and three children.
With three books now under his belt it is likely he will continue to explore the distant and sometimes distorted reaches of his mind’s eye for more tales to tell.
