What is your latest release and what genre is it? My debut novel, Disappearing in Plain Sight, came out in March of 2013. I classify it as contemporary fiction with a splash of romance.

Quick description: Sixteen-year-old Lisa-Marie has been packed off to spend the summer with her aunt on the isolated shores of Crater Lake. She is drawn to Izzy Montgomery, a gifted trauma counsellor who is struggling through personal and professional challenges. Lisa-Marie also befriends Liam Collins, a man who goes quietly about his life trying to deal with his own secrets and guilt. The arrival of a summer renter for Izzy’s guest cabin is the catalyst for change amongst Crater Lake’s tight knit community. People are forced to grapple with the realities of grief and desire to discover that there are no easy choices – only shades of grey.

Disappearing in Plain Sight - cover

Brief biography:
I’ve spent most of my life on the west coast of British Columbia. I live with my photographer/blogger/carpenter husband and I find inspiration for my writing in the beauty and drama of our lakeshore cabin and garden. I am in possession of a graduate degree in Counselling Psychology from the University of Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. I have worked as an educator, trauma counsellor and researcher over the years and now I spend my time writing novels that draw on so many of my work and life experiences.

What are you working on now?
I am currently in the final editing stages of the second book in the Crater Lake series (a sequel to Disappearing in Plain Sight) titled, The Light Never Lies. It is slated to come out in the spring of 2014. Francis updated Reading Recommendations on this new release on Feb. 14, 2014.

Francis’s reading recommendation:
I recently finished Linden Macintyre’s novel, Why Men Lie. Macintyre is well-known as a journalist on CBC’s Fifth Estate. His first novel, The Bishop’s Man, was also excellent and the two books are tightly linked in terms of characters and setting. Macintyre’s investigative experience has made him a superb story teller whose voice rings true. His switch to fiction writing is a welcome addition to the Canadian literary scene.
