Frances Bennett

About the author

Frances Bennett was a war baby, born in Dorset. Due to her father’s work, she moved home frequently until she was around ten years old. Her brother, nine years older, was away at boarding school and then worked in London, so Frances felt very much on her own. She was a solitary child and a voracious reader of Dickens, Thackeray, Kipling and more. They gave her an immense love of words and the separate world we enter when lost in a gripping story.

Frances had varied careers including those in antique jewellery and restaurant management; had a family, divorced, remarried happily to an artist but was widowed three years later.

Main sources of enjoyment for Frances include reading, writing, classical music, theatre, cooking, eating out and socialising with family and friends. She lives near Worcester Cathedral.

Frances says she’s been writing on and off for twenty-five years. She’s completed four novels, several short stories and ‘some poetry’.  Seeds of Destruction is the first novel to be published.

Seeds of Destruction was launched Sunday 12 October 2014, 16:00-18:00 at St Swithun’s Institute, Worcester, to great acclaim.

Frances’s second novel Something Wicked is to be launched 19th June at St John’s Library in St John’s, Worcester. Doors open 6pm for a 6.30pm start.
