I asked Fran to reveal a secret about her book or herself that had never been shared before, and here it is ...
Fran Veal: "I was a pom pom girl in college"
Description of Finding My Escape:
My life was shattered when I walked in to find my parents being murdered. He almost got me, too. The killer, I mean.
The police say it was a home invasion, but I don't believe it. I just wish the nightmares would stop. The same thing
every night, reliving it. Tripping over something...my dad's body. Hearing my mother scream. I can't take this anymore! So I run. I run to forget. I run to get away.
And then I meet Josh. He helps me forget, for a while, anyway.
He's absolutely perfect.
Or is he...
Fran Veal fell in love with the book Little Women in the third grade, and that was the spark that ignited her desire to write. If Jo could write then she felt she could, too. Her first attempt at writing stories was in the fifth grade when she began writing and drawing a cartoon for her friends. The drawing, to be honest, was terrible, but the stories must have been pretty decent because a friend recently informed her she'd kept some of them because “she always knew Fran would be a writer someday. Fran graduated to writing romance in ninth grade, which was more interesting and, no, there were no pictures (much to the readers' relief).
It wasn’t until Fran had a teen daughter of her own that she actually began writing again. Finding My Escape was her debut novel. The sequel, Finding My Way Back will be released August 23, 2013 with the third and final book in the series coming out in early 2014. She’s also working on a comedy geared more toward adults, Five Strikes, with fellow writer, Bryden Lloyd.
Fran currently resides in the beautiful city of Murfreesboro, TN with her husband of twenty-seven years, fifteen year old daughter, and one extremely snarky cat.
