Website Changes

We all know Einstein’s famous definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. Well, old Al also said, “The measure of intelligence is the ability to change.”

We’re all creatures of habit. We embrace the familiar and find comfort in our customary routines, avoiding change whenever possible. The same can be true of author’s websites. I’ve held on to this website for years, even as major changes have come that might confuse my readers. First of all, Parker Francis is my pen name, a pseudonym I adopted after writing and publishing the Windrusher trilogy which attracted many younger readers along with cat lovers of all ages. When I began writing harder-edged fiction with the Quint Mitchell Mystery series, I wished to avoid any confusion among the younger set and their parents. Hence, the Parker Francis pen name.

Since then, all my fiction—novels and short stories—have been published using the Parker Francis name. But to confuse matters further, I began collaborating with individuals to write their life stories. These literary legacies capture the lives of extraordinary men and women and the amazing experiences they wished to document. I wrote their biographies and Victor DiGenti was often credited as the co-author. The books have been published under my publishing imprint Windrusher Hall Press.

As those additional ghostwriting and publishing services expanded, my website remained fairly static. But now it’s time for a change to reflect the added services and different opportunities available to readers and writers. If you’re reading this, you’ve seen the reboot of ParkerFrancis dot into the Windrusher Hall Press website, the new home for authors Victor DiGenti and Parker Francis.

Change shouldn’t be feared, although as management consultant and engineer, the late W. Edwards Deming once said, “It is not necessary to change. Survival is not mandatory.” So, I invite you to check back on a regular basis to view the fearless changes coming to this site.
