Loretta Giacoletto divides her time between the St. Louis Metropolitan area and Missouri's Lake of the Ozarks where she concentrates on writing fiction while her husband cruises the waters for bass and crappie. Their five children have left the once chaotic nest but occasionally return for her to-die-for ravioli and roasted peppers topped with garlic-laden bagna càuda. An avid traveler, she has visited numerous countries in Europe and Asia but Italy remains her favorite, especially the area from where her family originates: the Piedmont region near the Italian alps.

Loretta's novels are filled with bawdy characters caught up in problems they must take responsibility for having created. In LETHAL PLAY a grieving widow is suspected of killing her son's coach, a man with more enemies than friends. FAMILY DECEPTIONS follows two generations of earthy characters who learn to thrive and/or survive through a series of misdeeds, the worst against those they love the most. FREE DANNER features a cynical young man whose troubled past and deadly encounters hinder his search for the father he has yet to meet. THE FAMILY ANGEL is a paranormal saga about the Americanization of an immigrant family of bootleggers, coalminers, winemakers and priests, and a mysterious black angel who enjoys sticking his nose in the family business.

In addition to the horror anthologies, Damned in Dixie and Hell in the Heartland, Loretta's short stories have appeared in a number of publications including The MacGuffin, Futures Mystery Anthology Magazine, The Scruffy Dog Review, Allegory and Literary Mama, which nominated her story "Tom" for Dzanc's 2010 Best of The Web.

An associate editor for Allegory ezine, Loretta is a member of Backspace Writers and the St. Louis Writers Guild.



 
BOOK BREAK

FREE DANNER Fiction - Crime, Mystery

Free Danner really is free, after spending ten years in Juvy for what the judge called an unspeakable act and Danner considered merciful. Now he’s determined to find the dad who doesn't know he exists. One thing's for sure: this is not The Maury Povitch Show; it's Danner's. And he figures everybody's out to screw him, especially the big shot who hired him as a hit-man-in-training. So what's a guy to do? The right thing, but can Danner figure out what’s right.
Free Danner is eleven when his party-girl mom sends him to live with her parents on their Southern Illinois farm. The generation gap proves harder on the rebellious city boy than his grandparents and soon results in a tragedy so horrific no one could’ve predicted it. Fast forward to Danner at twenty-two, by-passing those years he spent in the juvenile system and then some. He locates his mom Lark in St. Louis and demands she name the clueless dad. Lark’s not sure but with Danner’s not-so-gentle persuasion, she comes up with three possibilities. Danner’s search for his dad and a better life takes him on a crisscross journey to Las Vegas, Southern California, and the Florida Panhandle. Most of the off-beat characters he encounters along the way either wind up dead or wanting Danner out of their lives. But these people don’t know the real Danner or what being free means to him.

LETHAL PLAY Fiction - Crime, Mystery

Newly widowed Francesca Canelli would do anything to help her 15-year-old son Matt, an ambitious soccer player determined to honor his dad’s memory. Financially strapped and emotionally devastated, Francesca accepts a sexual proposition from the coach of Pegasi United who promises to secure Matt a starting position on his premier St. Louis team. Their bargain quickly sours when the coach abuses Francesca, demeans Matt, and threatens to renege on the deal.
The coach with more enemies than friends soon winds up dead, his battered and naked body hanging from a goalpost crossbar. In the ensuing investigation Francesca becomes the prime suspect. Now she's playing games with the detectives, her vulnerability fading as she fights to keep herself out of jail and her family intact. But then Francesca discovers she’s not the only person who really knows what happened that night the coach died. She has no choice but to strike a new bargain but will this one resolve her growing problems.

FAMILY DECEPTIONS Fiction - Historical

Pietro and Isabella Rocca are living a marriage of convenience in 1928 Italy. He allows his wife to rule the household, the farm, and their young twins. Isabella thinks she rules Pietro too, until she discovers him in bed with the neighbor’s wife. Isabella sends him away, to work in Torino for the year it will take her anger to subside. Instead, he sails to America with hopes of acquiring enough money to buy his family’s forgiveness. The new life Pietro builds—one based on gambling, extortion, bootlegging, and lies—seduces him to stay. Meanwhile in Italy, Isabella adjusts to life without Pietro, using deceit to safeguard her family and later to aid WWII partisans who eventually regard the son a hero and the daughter a Nazi collaborator. Twenty-nine years will pass before Pietro returns as a wealthy man, along with an American son determined to befriend the family his father deserted. But first, Pietro must redeem himself to Isabella, their children, and the neighbor he betrayed.
