He was fortunate to be an exchange student in La Serena, Chile, in the second half of 1982. He attended the University of Texas in Austin and, after three semesters, realized he was wasting his time and his parents'money and dropped out.Moving to New York City in 1987, Frank worked in the hospitality  industry for several years while also moving from there to San Francisco and to Provincetown before returning to Texas in 1992. Making Austin his home a second time, he finally settled into a corporate job and taught himself to write code and manage projects in Austin and Washington, D.C. After ten years of being what he likes to call "a normal person" he left the security of making a living in a "real job" and decided to strike out on his own.Spending several years traveling around the U.S. and Canada, he found himself drawn to Daytona Beach, Florida, where he now resides. His initial novel, The Unexpected Heiress, was self-published on June 1, 2016. 67 titles later, the stories keep coming, right out of thin air!Frank's book: This Thing Called Love: The Romantical Adventures of Whit & Eddie #7Frank's WebsiteLake on the Mountain by Jeffrey RoundBrad's Website: @gaymysterypodcastFacebook: Gay Mystery-Thriller-Suspense Fiction GroupQuestions or comments can be emailed to
