About

Fran 

I LIKE a lot of things: bees, movies, books, found objects, yarn, Japanese craft books, swimming, the sea, lighthouses, long drives, art exhibitions, ice cubes, faded Hollywood glamour. I also love Melbourne and my suburb, Footscray – Way Out West. Two things you probably don’t know about me: I once made Debbie Reynolds cry and I don’t believe anything truly bad can happen  – if you’re holding a book.

I’m a freelance writer, former journalist/deputy editor The Age newspaper (GreenGuide, Arts), columnist (Under Age, The Sunday Age) avid reader, freelance book reviewer with a special interest in Children’s Literature (post-grad-cert Child.Lit Deakin University). My reviews/interviews have been published in The Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, UpperCase Magazine, The Courier Mail, The Brisbane Times, The Canberra Times and The Illawarra Mercury.
