A champion in the fight against Multiple Sclerosis. Going blind and nearly dying from the disease in October of 1997, I battled back from bed ridden, wheelchair, and walker to cane. I still use a cane to keep from falling, and I regained vision in one eye. I‘ve pledged a combined 6% of my book royalties to three MS charities. My goal is to make those donations substantial. A husband, father of three and grandfather of four, I remain positive.
About Frank:
Secondary progressive MS is my diagnosis, I intend to bring attention to the disease for as long as I am able. I was a public servant working at the IRS as a tax examiner for ten years and as a substitute teacher for local public schools when I was forced into retirement due to MS.
Within a few years, I began to volunteer as a track and football coach at the local public high school where I taught with some success.
After doing this for ten years, the physical demands forced me to take a hiatus from coaching and journalism, and I focused on my books. Still trying to reclaim my life, I wrote Raven Wings and 13 More Twisted Tales. All but two reviews were good, and I was compared to Stephen King and Edgar Allan Poe. My stories are for adults not children, and the two bad reviews, 2 out of 5 stars, came from both ends of the spectrum. The far left said my material was too mild. The far right claimed it was too obscene.
