After graduating from the Fashion Institute of Technology, Frances worked for Bridal Guide Magazine. When she began homeschool teaching, she turned her creative talents toward writing children’s books, writing every day as well as taking classes. She prefers to write inspirational stories that bring encouragement to the reader in some way. Her work has been published in Clubhouse Jr. Magazine, two anthologies and Christian homeschooling newsletters. Her stories have placed in contests for Writer’s Digest Magazine and the Faithwriters.com writer’s challenge. She also enjoys writing for her blog, francysnewmorning.com. Frances lives on Long Island with her husband, five children and a little Yorkie with a big bark.
