FrancesFrost_2Ever since making weekly treks to the public library in walking distance from her childhood home, Frances has been amazed by the new worlds, new people, and new experiences you encounter in the pages of a book.  She loves books that will make you laugh, make you cry, make you think, and make you dream.

Frances was born in Seoul, S. Korea and has lived in seven states across the United States.  A former manufacturing manager and high school teacher, she is a graduate of the University of Delaware (where she began playing Spades) and Wake Forest University’s Babcock Graduate School of Management (where she began drinking coffee).

She has been making up her own stories ever since convincing her younger brother that she could make butter from those little teeny cups of coffee creamer.  She chronicles her thoughts on motherhood, books, and crafts on her blog, Just Piddlin’.

Frances is active in her sorority, the PTA, Girls on the Run, and the lives of her four children.  She would be quite content living on a sunny beach overlooking the ocean, but in the meantime, she lives in Silver Spring, Maryland with her husband, their children, and their rescued pup.

Life in Spades was her first novel.  Mourning Calm will be added to the shelf in April 2016.
