https://www.amazon.com/-/e/B0189L68JI Fran Driscoll (formerly Roberts) was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Although she loved the people and her Green Bay Packers, she relocated to the Gulf Coast to enjoy six months of summer and NO winter. She currently teaches middle school in Pascagoula, MS, and truly enjoys a challenge. Her first two books were devotionals, brought about by a curse she prayed upon herself as a young child: "Lord, please don't ever let my life be boring." The first book is "31 Prayers for the Addict I Love" written after the untimely death of two addicted loved ones. The second is "31 Prayers for When Life Isn't Fair" at the request of a fellow teacher. Driscoll’s first fiction novel, "A Place Called Grace," is an action-packed Christian Romance. The sequel, "A Place Without Mercy," was released in December, 2016. Following that were several short stories, three in Mobile Writers Guild Anthologies “Pieces,” "Mardi Gras Pieces," and “Valentine's Day Pieces” as well as a short story in "The Trouble With Cupid: 10 Short Mysteries Spiced with Romance." Novel number three, “A Broken Place,” is loosely tied to the first two "Place" novels, but can stand alone as can the 2019 novella "No Second Place." Other McPhillen stories are still to come, since just about every day something happens that would make a great story (back to that aforementioned curse). Driscoll has also published several poems and short stories, and loves to read as much as write. She lives in Pascagoula with her sweet husband, two talented daughters, & four dogs (the amount of animals could vary at any time, though). She has a grown son in South Carolina who also happens to be her favorite preacher & who has recently married a wonderful girl named Kim. Driscoll is a former member of Gulf Coast Writer's Association and Mobile Bay Writer’s Project, co-Vice President of Mobile Writer's Guild, and is forever indebted to the wonderful and gifted West Mobile Writer's Group.
