Fran Driscoll was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Although she loved the people and her Green Bay Packers, she relocated to the Gulf Coast to enjoy six months of summer and NO winter. She currently teaches middle school Compensatory Language Arts in Pascagoula, MS, and truly enjoys a challenge. Her first two books were devotionals, brought about by a curse she prayed upon herself as a young child: “Lord, please don’t ever let my life be boring.” The first book is “31 Prayers for the Addict I Love” written after the untimely death of two addicted loved ones. The second is “31 Prayers for When Life Isn’t Fair”. Roberts’ first fiction novel, “A Place Called Grace,” is a Christian Romance/Murder Mystery. The sequel– “A Place Without Mercy” will be available in early December, 2016. She has also published several poems and short stories, and loves to read as much as write. She lives in Pascagoula with her husband, two children, three dogs and a cat. She is a former member of Mobile Bay Writing Project, and a current member of the Gulf Coast Writer’s Association and Alabama Writer’s Guild.

A BROKEN PLACE

Dead bodies seem to follow Reverie Martin. When she meets an old schoolmate, who also happens to be Green Bay Packer corner back Jordy Schmidt, more than sparks fly. She and Jordy are kidnapped after he is framed for murder, so her Uncle Phil and Hunter join the chase. But do they have a chance against a sophisticated crime ring that seems to have a free hand in parts of the US and Puerto Rico? In the third book of the “Broken” series, the McPhillen family is called upon to help free Jordy and Reverie and catch the “Brown Eyed Girl” killer who began his spree in Wisconsin. (This book can stand alone even if you haven’t read the first two in the series.)

31 PRAYERS FOR THE ADDICT
​I LOVE

Genre: Christian Non-Fiction/Devotional/ Prayer

Loving an addict hurts. It doesn’t matter how many times we promise ourselves that we will not be hurt again, there is a particular pain in knowing that one you love will do anything to have the object of his or her desire. Even if it means death. Even if it ruins their future–or yours. Especially when children pay for it. There is no more powerless feeling on earth. This book of prayers is meant to uplift the weary, soothe the brokenhearted, and call on the power of God to heal the addicts we love.

LIFE ISN’T FAIR
Genre: Christian Non-Fiction/Devotional/ Prayer


Habakkuk 3:16 – I hear, and my body trembles; my lips quiver at the sound; rottenness enters into my bones; my legs tremble beneath me…It is difficult to love and serve the Lord with a broken heart. It often seems that those who are heartless go their merry way and sail through life, while some who work tirelessly for the Lord and do their best to walk with God see disaster after disaster. There is no greater pain on earth than the loss of a child—except the loss of more than one child. Whether it is quick and unexpected or a long, agonizing march to the end, the pain cuts so deep that it takes our breath away. It makes no sense. But there are many things in life that leave us asking, “Why, God?” When life beats us up, when we can barely lift our head because we are so broken, it’s hard to remember that God is good—all the time. This book of “Life’s Unfair” prayers is meant to heal the broken, encourage the wounded and point us to the God who loves us infinitely and works all things together for our good.
