More About the Author

"It's not as bad as it sounds."

̶ Mark Twain's opinion of Wagnerian opera

Internationally known author and journalist Frank Sanello has written extensively about the entertainment industry, cultural anthropology, politics, medical and social issues, and revisionist history in his 20+ books and in major newspapers and magazines.

His nonfiction historical books include "The Opium Wars: The Addiction of One Empire and the Corruption of Another," "The Knights Templars: God's Warriors, the Devil's Bankers," "Invisible People: History's Homosexuals Unhidden," "Victims and Victimizers: Gays and Lesbians in the Third Reich," "Fractured History Tales or Why (Almost) Everything You Thought You Knew About the Past Never Happened," and "To Kill a King: A History of Royal Murders and Assassinations From Ancient Egypt to the Present."

The author has also written books on medical and health issues such as "Tweakers: How Crystal Meth Is Ravaging Gay America" and "Saving America: Solutions for a Nation in Crisis." Coauthored by University of Tennessee Professor Emeritus Adel N. Shenouda, M.D., "Saving America" offers an ingenious plan to provide affordable health insurance for all Americans.

An investigative journalist for the past 35 years, Sanello has written articles for the Washington Post, the New York Times Syndicate, the Los Angeles Times, the Chicago Tribune, the Chicago Sun-Times, the Boston Globe, the San Francisco Chronicle, USA Today, Redbook, People Weekly, US Weekly, and Penthouse. Cosmo and other magazines have excerpted his books.

Sanello was formerly a film reviewer and entertainment reporter for the Los Angeles Daily News and a business reporter for UPI.

The author graduated cum laude with a bachelor's degree in English literature from the University of Chicago and earned a master's degree in screenwriting from UCLA.

Sanello's blogs at www.historyasfrontpagenews.com and on RedRoom.com explore controversial issues such as why gays in the military secretly valued "Don't ask, don't tell" because the policy gave them a "get out of the military free card" and why Pentagon officials hated the policy because they had spent billions of dollars training gay personnel who revealed their homosexual orientation and received an honorable discharge.

Other columns posted on Sanello's web sites offer an alternate insight into why pedophiles commit their monstrous crimes and the disturbing revelation that the rate of new cases of HIV-infection is greater in some areas of the U.S. than in sub-Saharan Africa.

The author's new novel, "The Autobiography of Frau Adolf Hitler," presents the memoirs and daily diary of Hitler's imaginary wife, a beautiful 16-year-old Swedish countess forced by her ambitious mother to marry the 43-year-old Nazi dictator.

Before publication in 2012, the novel was serialized on Red Room and HubPages. The fictional wife of Hitler apparently seemed so real to some readers of the serialization that they contacted the author and asked if Frau Hitler was a genuine historical character they had somehow missed in history class!

Sanello is currently writing "All Blood Runs Red," a screenplay based on the life of Eugene Bullard, America's first black aviator and World War I hero.

A purple belt in Tae Kwon Do, the author has volunteered at AIDS Project Los Angeles as a self-defense instructor for victims of AIDS- and fag-bashing.

He lives in West Hollywood, California, and invites readers to contact him at FSanello@aol.com.

This book is so full of errors and inconsistancies that I began to doubt everything in it. It made me wonder if the author even knows Sly as a person or understands him in any capacity. It certainly isn't a book for Stallone FANS because it portrays Sly as a bottom feeder and (tries!) to makes the reader think that Sly is a low-life who possesses every negative quality known to mankind. Not only does the author make fun of Sly on practically every page from beginning to end, he also quotes all negatives from "alledged" co-workers, "friends", critics, etc. Most of the "quotes" from Stallone are hearsay, not from actual interviews between Sly and the author. And nowhere in the book will you find that Sly cooperated with or endorsed this "biography". It's a joke and the worst [amount of money] I ever spent on a book. ...

This book is really enjoyable, it describes the climb of one legendary actor: Sylvester Stallone.From his early teen adventures till "copland", it's full of information, fun, deep thoughts, quotes from the infatigable optimistic. Know more about the 1000 % profissionalism Sly applies when he's on duty.

I was very pleased with the book and was fascinated to find out information that I did not know about Sly. However some parts did get boring for instance I did not want to know the relationships in detail of Sly. HOwever some bits were very interesting this included the review on his films and his background.

How good could be an unauthorized biography of a living person? Not too great, but it's the only one on the market that deserves to throw an eye on. Something to stand on my library's shelf beside "Sly Moves : My Proven Program to Lose Weight, Build Strength, Gain Will Power, and Live your Dream".
