Fran McNabb grew up along the beaches and islands of the Gulf Coast. After spending the first years of her marriage in Germany, she and her husband returned to the coastline to raise their two sons. Whether it's sparkling waters or snowy mountains, setting plays an important role in her books.

Fran earned both her B.S. and her M.E. in English from the University of Southern Mississippi, whose football team (The Golden Eagles) dominates her family's life in the fall. After retirement from teaching English and journalism, Fran now spends her time reading, writing, and enjoying the quiet bayou harbor where she and her husband live.

She'd love to hear from her readers, so please use the email link at the bottom of the page.
