Fran Connor – Author – Screenwriter - Playwright
Fran grew up in the North of England among those ‘Dark Satanic Mills’ surrounded by the brooding Pennine moors that forged the Brontë family of authors. While he would be the first to admit he doesn’t quite reach such literary heights he does claim this area created his love for the wild landscapes and romance of desolate places that sometimes find their way into his work.
After employment on the railways and in the dreaded Inland Revenue Tax Office in London he moved south to join the police force where he rose to the rank of Chief Inspector before retiring after thirty-three years to move to South West France.
During his time in the police, he has seen people at their best and worst. He doesn’t write cop stories but draws on that experience to craft his characters and situations to give them authenticity.
Here in France among the ancient fortified villages once occupied by the English in the Middle-Ages before being thrown out, he has found an idyllic lifestyle with his wife, dog and chickens. The French seem to have forgiven the Brits for the marauding antics of the Black Prince and Henry V! He’s hoping Brexit will not upset the apple cart again.
Fran’s novels include Romance in ‘Sophia and the Fisherman’; Fantasy in ‘The Devil’s Bridge’; tongue in cheek Thriller in ‘Her Man in Havana’; Drama in ‘Someone To Watch Over Me’; Historical Romance in ‘Honourable Lies’; and the three series Political Thrillers in the Artemis series, ‘Operation Hydra’, The Genesis Project’ and ‘The Alcazar Code’. He also wrote the War Drama ‘Dunkirk’.
‘Passarinho and the Highlander’ is Fran’s latest novel set in 1730s Boston, Georgia and Jamaica. It’s an action-packed Romantic Thriller that will have you cheering for its flawed heroine, Susannah, as she overcomes her prejudice and grapples with a shock revelation about herself.

I live in SW France for the lifestyle after a career in a UK Police Force. I have six published novels, three more in the pipeline and six plays that have been produced on stage. My screenplays portfolio contains seven feature length scripts with one about to go into production.
I write mainly Historical Fiction but I do other genres too. I don't do cop stories, I had enough of the real thing.
