Fran Kimmel writes and teaches in Central Alberta. Her work has appeared in literary journals across Canada.
Fran's debut novel, The Shore Girl, won the 2013 Alberta Readers’ Choice Award and was selected as a Canada Reads Top 40 book. Her second book, No Good Asking, has become a book club favourite and is published internationally.
In a literary world that's becoming more akin to Hollywood every day, a book like Kimmel's--one one that asks a little from its readers--should be held dear.
