--Writing the tender side of romance

I write romance, tender romance to be exact, or as some readers call it, sweet romance. No, you won't find murders, shape-shifters, hot love scenes, or sit-on-the-edge-of-your-chair suspense. Instead, you'll find real men and women finding the healing power of love as they work through their everyday problems.

Why do I write in this genre? I like a good story that brings me to an aaah ending, or leaves me with a tear in my eye or a smile on my face. I like to feel good. There's enough bad in this world so I like to think that my books can bring a little joy to someone's life.

Fran's essay, Peter M. Skrmetta, A Boy from Brac will be included in the anthology Mississippi Profiles, Memorable Men and Women of the Magnolia State.

It is a story about her grandfather who come to the U.S. in 1903 with nothing, not even a pair of shoes. Because he wasn't willing to sit and watch the world go by, he worked hard and started a business in the tourist trade that has survived 75 years.
