Frances Susanne Brown is a multi-published nonfiction author, memoirist, and novelist.

An obsession to fill out her family tree led her to research her maternal heritage, and spawned her memoir, Maternal Threads from High Hill Press, now available on Amazon and at a Barnes & Noble near you.

Frances also writes fiction under two pseudonyms: Claire Gem (Soul Mate Publishing) - New Gothic Romance & Suspense, and Charlotte Daly - Contemporary Romance: The Lake George Series, coming soon from Lachesis Publishing. Visit her other "personas" here:
