About the Author
Frank lives along the Mississippi River, and has leveraged his many life experiences to write The Foundry, the lead story in the Dianis, A World In Turmoil chronicles. He was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan where he and his father cruised the Great Lakes. His father often chose to go out on the lake when it was empty, on the roughest days. Frank spent six years in the US Navy chasing Russian submarines. His love of the sea is reflected in The Foundry, and again in The Matriarch, a love he has shared with his wife and two girls.
As a hunter, Frank has taken game with a variety of weapons, including the muzzleloader, the device modeled in The Foundry and used as the weapon against the pirates in The Matriarch, and against the Drakans in The Citadel.
He assists his wife in her passion for horses as stable hand and the rider of their newest horse, Suzette, a delightful Paint. Equines appear regularly in the Dianis series, not as horses, but as eenus.
Frank's care for our Earth and the stewardship of their land in Wisconsin is emulated in the culture and ethos of the Timberkeeps.
He has two degrees, a Bachelor of Computer Science and a Master of Business Administration. Those degrees have been integral to his professional life where he has worked in a variety of roles from software engineer, to marketing executive, to chief information officer at such prominent firms as SAP and Organic Valley. The technical and scientific acumen he gained through those endeavors is demonstrated in the series in the effort to make the Dianis brand of science practically possible somewhere in the galaxy.
