Despite a tragic predilection to paint, Frances finally discovered her calling as a writer sometime in her mid thirties.
As a lifetime reader of Science Fiction and Fantasy, the stories that clammer for her attention inevitably fall into the Speculative Fiction category.
She currently resides in Washington State with her husband, two small children, and a host of unusual and exotic pets.
Frances eats far too much chocolate, drinks far too little wine and does her best to get the stories out and on paper before they drive her completely insane.
Painting (still) Rock Collecting, Wine Making (and drinking) Puppetry, Tarantulas and, recently, hairless dogs.
