Pierdomenico Baccalario

P. D. Baccalario was born in a little town in Piedmont, Italy. He wrote his first novel, La Strada del Guerriero (The Road Warrior), in fifteen days and sent it to the Battello a Vapore Prize (Steamboat Prize), which it won. He wrote it under his neighbor's name because he was shy and only twenty-three years old at the time. P. D. currently lives in Milan.
