About Frannie

Frannie's picture

A reader for all seasons, Frannie is just as happy with a tattered copy of Pippi Longstocking as she is with latest volume of Brain K. Vaughan's Saga. Primarily interested in the visual language in prose and colorful plays on words, secondarily occupied with troubled souls and tales of redemption.
