Fran Connor - Novelist, Screenwriter, Playwright

Fran Connor is British and lives in SW France with his wonderful wife Viv, their dog Molly and chickens. He claims he's living in that area for the lifestyle and weather which he says helps an author's creative juices. It may just be an excuse to drink wine and lounge in the sun. He writes novels, nine published so far with two more coming out soon.

The fisherman who pulls Sophia out of the harbor has a secret and she's dying to know it but hopefully not literally.

Sophia decides to take a vacation in the South of France to get away from troubles back home from her ex and work. 
As she strolls along the quayside she trips over a discarded rope and head over heels falls into the dock. About to be turned into mincemeat by the propeller of a trawler she's saved by a fisherman.
Partly as a thank you gesture, but mostly because he's the coolest and best-looking guy she has ever met, she takes him out to dinner where she becomes intrigued with this man who seems to be only masquerading as a poor fisherman. Who is he? And what is the secret he's hiding? She wants to know.
As a romance develops she's drawn into his world so different from her own.

After a successful career in public service in the UK I moved to SW France where I turned my talents to writing. The area has an abundance of orchards and vineyards among rolling hills, near-deserted roads, and ancient villages that ooze history and cry out for their pasts to be explored. It is the perfect location for an author to let the stories creep into the subconscious like a painter welcomes the light.

I helped establish a French/English acting group ‘La Troupe d’Acteurs du Quercy’ in 2002, and it continues to grow with new people bringing their many talents to keep the team fresh and innovative.
My oeuvre includes novels, short stories, stage plays, and screenplays. Please browse this site to see my range.
For the right project, I am also available to ghostwrite or write for hire. ‘Right’ in this case means one that appeals to me. I don’t write anything unless the idea inspires me
