Frances Susanne Brown is an accomplished writer of both nonfiction and fiction, including scientific journal articles, personal essays, historical magazine features, short stories, and novels. A graduate of NYIT, she received her MFA in Creative Writing from Lesley University.
Her passion for history took hold as a child when she picked up a book on Early Netherlandish painting. Her interest in art history, Medieval period in particular, drove her to perfect her researching skills. A trip to Belgium and the Netherlands fueled the fire. She began to write.
Frances's articles have appeared in Herb Quarterly, The Family Chronicle, History Magazine, and she writes regularly for Renaissance. In 2006, her personal essay entitled "Graelem's Song" won the Creative Writing contest in the nature periodical, Whisper in the Woods.
An obsession to fill out her family tree led her to research her maternal heritage, and spawned her memoir, Maternal Threads, presently under contract with High Hill Press, expected release date early 2015.
Originally from upstate New York, Frances has also lived in Florida, Texas, and North Carolina. She presently resides in Massachusetts, where she works for Tufts University.
Frances loves to read and write fiction, especially romance and a good ghost story. She is presently seeking representation for her novels, which are hybrids of these two genres.
