About Arthur Frank

Arthur Frank is a former Director of Labor Relations for several fortune 250 corporations, responsible for union contract negotiations, strike preparations, arbitration advocacy, grievance handling, discipline and discharge, and staff supervision. As America was losing its industrial base in a dying career field and he changed careers to own a magazine publishing business, producing both consumer and trade publications.

Magazines are also a declining field, and he sold out in favor of pursuing leisure activities. He is an expert in 19th Century European paintings and sculptures, and trades in the art market, a highly specialized challenging field. He never considered writing fiction until he told his wife that a certain story was really disappointing and that he could do better himself, in Colin Dexter fashion. She retorted he couldn’t possibly do it, that it was not his training, with his bachelors and masters degrees and US Air Force service, so he wrote his first novel of some 130,000 words. Surprised, she said it was actually good.

He has lived all of his adult life in Northern Monmouth County, New Jersey now living in Holmdel for many years, where he is active in the community holding several elected or appointed local positions. He has always been afflicted with wander lust, and may be found on the beaches and waterways of Fort Lauderdale in the winters and in the cafes and theaters of Woodstock NY in the summers. He speaks 5 northern European languages and travels overseas by car when he can. Getting lost is half the fun.
