About Linda Maria Frank
After many years in the teaching profession, Linda Maria Frank, the author of Annie Tillery Mysteries, has launched a new career. Inspired by a childhood passion for the Nancy Drew series and the popular television series, CSI, she successfully married an appealing heroine (Annie Tillery) with gripping story plots to create these new fiction books for mystery readers.
THE MADONNA GHOST has earned the distinctive “Editor’s Choice” and “Rising Star” awards. GIRL WITH PENCIL DRAWING, the second book in the series, ramps up the adventure and suspense. Annie stays one step ahead of the bad guys by the skin of her teeth.
Frank recently retired from Adelphi University where she supervised science student teachers. To quote, “Writing, publishing, and marketing books is a full time job, and it’s time to change careers.”
Today, she collaborates with children’s author, Karen Bonnet, to do presentations about their books, and their journeys in self-publishing. Linda and Karen give a portion of the proceeds from their books to the Interfaith Nutritional Network.
Presently, Frank is involved in a project at LTV in East Hampton called “The Writer’s Dream,” an interview show where authors discuss the many different aspects of the profession. The show is aired on Cablevision 20 and can be seen on YouTube.
Her ultimate goals are: to find an agent who will present her books to the TV or film industries, to find venues to present my books and programs, and to organize book fairs as events for non-profit organizations to raise money.
