About Autour: Fran L. Porter
Fran Porter is a retired high-school English and French teacher who lives with her retired geologist husband Andy in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. She is the author of When the Ship has no Stabilizers (2014), a book about their youngest daughter Colleen, afflicted with borderline personality disorder. That book raised nearly $50,000, which was donated to start a treatment clinic for city BPD youth and resulted in the Porters receiving Calgary’s 2017 ‘Philanthropic Family of the Year’ award. Since then, Fran has written the Foreword for the latest Stop Walking on Eggshells book, one directed at parents, by U.S. author and BPD authority Randi Kreger, due for release in January 2022.
Fran’s 2019 novel The Wrong Brother, as well as this novel, Dastardly Deed, are both romantic suspense stories taking place in the fictitious midwestern town of Barrett. A Barrett Romantic Suspense.
