Frances Housden has always been a voracious reader, but she never thought of being a writer until a teacher gave her the encouragement she needed to put pen to paper. As a result, Frances was a finalist in the 1998 Clendon Award and won the award in 1999, which led to the sale of her first book for Silhouette, The Man for Maggie.

France's marriage to a navy man took her from her birthplace in Scotland all the way to the ends of the earth in New Zealand. Now that he's a landlubber, they try to do most of the traveling together. They live on a ten-acre bush block in the heart of Auckland's Wine District. She has two large sons, two small grandsons and a tiny granddaughter who can twister her around her finger, as well as a wheaten terrier who think she's boss. Thanks to one teacher's dedication, Frances now gets to write about the kind of heroes a woman would travel to the ends of the earth for.
