  • Frances Giles

    Frances Giles was born in Beaumont and spent what she naively thought was a relatively normal childhood before departing for nursing school at age 19. She had a four decade career as an RN, moved to Austin a couple of years after graduation and has had scads of interesting, fulfilling, quirky and downright bizarre life experiences that she wouldn't trade for anything. She came late to writing after a fortuitous e-mail contact with Barclay Gibson who put her in contact with Texas Escapes, jump starting a rich and rewarding phase in her sunset years. She is grateful to them for putting up with her efforts at stringing words together in a more or less coherent form, thereby unleashing her on an unsuspecting reading public. She tends to write in a humorous vein (often funny only to her) and has never met a pun she didn't like.
