I WRITE FOR MYSELF. I HOPE OTHERS ENJOY THE RIDE.
The following books are expected to go to press in the near future:
The Ink Man Chronicles (Mystery Fiction): A mixed genre novel about a family's vacation gone horribly wrong with short stories mixed in that are written by two of the main characters in the book. The father is an aspiring writer and the son is a tattoo artist. The novel is finished and now in editing. I am hoping for publication some time in 2017 or early 2018.
The Circuitry Gender (Science Fiction): An absract tale about man and machine, their evolution and collection of information before the end of time. This work carries social, political and religious undertones aimed at answering one important question, "Do you believe in God?" Presently, on the shelf. Too much God and politics going on right now.
Dancing With the Undertaker (Mystery/Fiction): Update: Dancing With The Undertaker is now available and was released the beginning of 2012. 09192012 update: This release is now available on e-book from Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
Tales from the Land of Dreamwake: (Fiction) A collection of short stories from over the years that have helped develop Frank's style of writing. Dancing With the Undertaker was initially one of these short stories and, at the urging of his wife, eventually developed into his second novel. This collection of short stories is on track for publication at about the same time as my next novel, Dust.
11/20/2012 entry: Tales from the Land of Dreamwake: is taking on a rather peculiar life. It is morphing into a series of short stories that are the body of a novel. I did not expect this with this type of work. I do like the direction it is taking. I hope my readers will agree. The release date may be a little longer than expected.
Where Spiders Hide (Fiction): Where does a prosecuting attorney do when justice falls short of the line? You must eventually judge her as the jury judges many of her cases. What is the definition of good and evil? Does one justify the other? What must one do to achieve justice? What must one do to achieve peace? These are just a few of the questions begging for answers in her (and your?) mind. 11/20/2012 update: Should be on time for release this coming year. Detective Gary Sigrist from my first novel Bucket of Strangers will enter the picture again. The man is legend in his own mind and I hope to help him prove his point. Too, a private investigator is introduced. His name is Jack Lynch. Jack is accompanied by his pet dog. The dog is lovely referred to as Moochie Poochie. The two live and move around Key West, Florida in a yellow convertible Mini-Cooper. Moochie Poochie wears specially fitted sunglasses and is much like Detective Gary Sigrist, a legend in her own mind.
